Scrolls For A Set Of Architectural Security Grills

I recently started a private commission for two architectural security grills. These will protect a set of rectangular windows that flank a fireplace in the client’s living room. Since the windows face out to a shallow passage on the side of the house with little visibility, the client requested that the grills be designed as an interior element.

The design process ebbed and flowed a bit beginning with plant-like forms and evolving into scroll patterns that we are both happy with. As luck would have it I found several scroll jigs in the back corner of the blacksmithing shop at the Crucible where I am building these.

I am about 1/4 through the process and hope to be ready to install by the the year’s end.
