Thanks for the compliment, honestly i'm still learning. if you've already worked in metal, just start making things a bit bigger than usual, and then keep going.

Congrats for coming the third place! :boogie:
I love those lovely dragonflies, they added the soft touches to the cast iron!

Thank you so much. [link]

The arbor is all hand forged, hand hammered. I've never done any cast work, don't know how....;)

My pleasure!

I may have an arch fetish. I love cast iron arches with passionflowers or clematis all over them... but this doesn't need them!

My Grandad would approve - he put silk flowers in his arch so it was the same all year round :lol:

You know, I was thinking of entering the contest and wanted a look at the competition, and this just blew me away. Art Nouveau is my favorite artistic movement and this is one of the best modern interpretations I've seen -- it's hard to find good sculptural art nouveau nowadays for me, nigh on impossible. Everything about this is perfect -- natural, almost whimsically so, despite its materials.
