Provided with an image of a set of handrails from the private clients previous property, Donkeywell forge was tasked with recreating the handrails down to the fine details of the aged steel. We achieved this by forging bespoke components to use for the bar decoration. This created the incising on the steel that could be seen in the image.  We worked very closely with the clients to reach the desired aesthetic. Providing them with samples for their consideration during the design proceess. Once each of the bars had been forged, we accentuated the markings on the steel by burnishing and sealing the steel to keep as much texture and blackened colouration as possible. We fitted the handrails into the steps and traditionally lead caulked around the bases.
