Job:       Exterior Architectural Commission

Date:     July  2002

Site:      Washington, DC  (Northwest)  

Overview:  Two custom grilles mounted on a Washington mansion. The grilles themselves employ traditional blacksmithing joinery -- collars, tenons, rivets -- and make use of another exclusive hammer and anvil technique the tapered scroll.  This project was commissioned by The Craftsmen Group, a high-end custom millwork/carpentry company.  The grilles were designed by Leo Daly Architects, a world-renowned firm whose recent projects include the massive new Ronald Reagan Airport (formerly known as National Airport) in Washington, DC. The finish is industrial grade oil-based primer and enamel.
