Fortunately our next comission gave us the opportunity to play with the gold leaf. A retired farmer wanted some wheat railings on his balcony for his new house. Being a farmer he was quite specific about his wheat with the number of seed heads and straight stems, we curved the heads randomly to look like they are waving in the wind, hopefully. The gold leafing went well. very time comsuming and fiddly. The wheat heads were forged on the power hammer, it was quite amazing how much concentration they tiik to try and get them all uniform as wheat grows, one miss hit sent the metal off in the wrong direction. Very impressed that the supplier stated that it will probably out last the house!! Andy was really pleased with his corner posts. More importantly the client was really pleased too.

Back in January I received an e-mail from Rob Sigafoos about a gift he wanted to have made for his wife's Birthday.

This is the latest in the candlesticks. This was done for my wife Susan. They were made from 3/8" vine textured steel with forged leaves and candle cups. The base come apart so that they can be used separately, if need be. Susan loves them, but then again she is a little predigest about my work.
