Henry House is a therapy centre in Worthing and has a spa as well as other therapeutic practices.
When I visited Henry House I had a look for inspiration, as I always do when designing a unique piece of metalwork for a client, and found reeds and clown fish painted on their walls at the spa. I also visited their garden where they had bee hives.
So I designed a gate incorporating the fish and reeds and then designed the arch, which incorporates the honey bees and the HH logo for their business.
If your interested in having a unique piece of metalwork designed and made for your property or business then please get in touch, contact details are on the home page. Thank you.
This is what I am working on at the moment - A Honda Arch. A lady came in with a car 3 months ago and asked if I could make a sculpture out of it, in memory of her Husband Maurice [because he loved the car and engineering].
I took the Honda Legend apart and played around with the parts and decided that an Arch would look good with the parts of the car intwined with decorative, branchy metalwork, I then drew the design for the client and she gave me the go ahead.
This was a very open and creative commission, which I enjoyed very much and I hope Lesley does to when it's in her garden.
The Honda Arch before painting. Parts include the registration, grill, alloy wheels, windscreen wipers, rear lights, Honda and Legend signs and also mirrors, which are shown below but not above.
I am currently making 3 spiral handrails for Arundel Castle in West Sussex as well as some other bits for them.
These spiral staircases are old. The first brick laid down in the part of Arundel castle that is pictured was in 1067, just after the Norman conquest. I have to thank the Normans because they did a very good and accurate job and made my job a little easier. These handrails will be installed in March 2018 and will hopefully last hundreds of years.
A Post and bracket to hold a sign for a house called Rose Cottage, hence the Roses and thorns to work within the theme of the clients property.
Heres a picture of the bracket, which will be welded to a post shaped like a tree trunk.
