Wrought iron gates

I was reading Margaret’s blog yesterday and her photo of the wrought iron reminded me of some research I did on wrought iron gates when I was doing C&G.

I saw these swan gates on a visit to St Hugh’s College, Oxford. They were made by Whistler. I don’t know if it is the same Whistler as the artist – anyone know?

Here is another gate I like:

I can’t remember if that was in Oxford too.

I did some designs based on them:

  1. Lovely Liz. Thanks for sharing. I must show some of the things I have used them for. I was able to take a few at the V and A a while back, they have a fantastic collection.
