We’re really proud of this swinging sign we designed and made just before Christmas. The customer specified that there are Oak, Sycamore and Chestnut trees outside her property, and also that she didn’t want anything too traditional looking. So I’ve tried to make the sign fairly contemporary by keeping the design quite chunky and bold; nothing too ornate like some of our more art nouveau inspired metalwork. The Oak leaves came from a design I did a while ago for an Owl weathervane, and the Chestnut leaves I spent a bit of time drawing especially for this design. I think both work so well because they are such distinctive, bold shapes.
