Fireplace Screens, Grate & Tools

This is the largest fireplace screen I have ever created. I have about 60 hours in this project. I was given a sketch by a designer and this was for her home. The tree bark effect was done by weld patterns. All the tree limbs and pine cones were hand forged. This screen is 7 feet wide by almost 6 feet tall and has a tempered glass insert.  It sits in front of a giant two sided gas log fireplace and the purpose is to deflect some of the heat back into another area of the house. The finish is a bronze patina with dark, oil rubbed highlights with green verde patina on the pine needles.

 

 

Here are some other things I have done over the years.

FIRE FORK

 

This was an interesting forging project for a good customer of mine, THE  "FIRE FORK" at one time, long ago these were popular with owners of large fireplaces.

My customer found a picture of one of these hanging over a fireplace that had been these peoples family (unknown) for 6 generations.
