Canopy restoration, Lansdown Bath

This pretty Georgian canopy was reclaimed and restored on behalf of a client who lives on Lansdown in Bath.  Martin Smith carried out this restoration in the Ironart workshops in Larkhall. He started by stripping it apart, straightening all the sections and making moulds for the lead cast ball detailing. Martin had to make a new mould for the larger ball detail on the sides (which were new additions). We think it really enhances the back door to their garden.

 

 

Pretty garden balustrade panels

We are lucky enough to visit some very special houses and gardens through our work. These pretty panels were designed as edge protection for a garden on Greenway Lane in Bath. Many of the houses on Greenway Lane have steep gardens and this one enjoys some spectacular views over beautiful Lyncombe Vale. The homeowner wanted something more than a simple balustrade. Andy’s design incorporates some lead cast detailing, inspired by our client’s visit to the Ironart workshop last year where the team were casting lead details on another project.

 

 

St James’s Square balcony restoration

Martin restored two really pretty Georgian balconettes a few weeks ago. These balconettes were situated on the back of a house in St James’s Square in the centre of Bath. I’ve posted the full project on our website – CLICK for a link to take you to that area of our site. We’ve also made a short film showing Martin in action lead casting in the Ironart workshops – so if you’d like to see how it was done… CLICK to take a look.
