STAINED GLASS GATES

THE IDEA TO HAVE A STAINED GLASS THEME TO THESE GATES WAS BORN FROM MY CLIENTS' BRIEF FOR A PAIR OF LEAFY GATES. UNLIKE MOST IRONWORK THESE GATES WILL CONSTANTLY BE VIEWED FROM BOTH SIDES, SO I FELT THE DESIGN SHOULD WORK FROM EQUALLY WELL FROM THE FRONT OR BACK, BUT TRADITIONALLY FORGED LEAVES ONLY TEND TO WORK FROM ONE SIDE. THIS DESIGN WAS INSPIRED BY MY LOVE OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT AND ART NOUVEAU, BLENDING THE ELONGATED FORMS OF CHARLES RENNIE MACKINTOSH AND FLUID CURVES OF VICTOR HORTA. THE IMPERFECT SYMMETRY PREVENTS THE DESIGN FROM BECOMING VISUALLY STALE AS A WHOLE AND MEANS EACH SIDE LOOKS GOOD ON ITS OWN, EVEN WHEN THE OTHER IS OPEN
