Railing detail from a public art commission that is underway.

This public art railing commission has been on hold for several years but is finally coming together and looking rather fabulous too. At over 40m long the forged railing sits on the site of the old Ordnance survey HQ in Southampton. The metalwork design featured spinning compasses and lots of rivets and other forged blacksmithing techniques. Here you can see the hot twisted ends on each of the panels.
