Vin Villa: Small Decorative Fireplace Hoods

These decorative fireplace hoods are going to be placed on both openings of a fireplace at Vin Villa; the oldest winery in North America.  Vin Villa is located on Pelee Island, Canada; in the Western Basin of Lake Erie, just above the Canadian-American border.  The winery being transformed into an international fund rising facility & beautiful place for business retreats.  We also designed and hand forged the winery doors, beautiful grapevine hinges, along with the sconces on the side panels.  But the most elaborate thing we forged was a  37' long grapevine chandelier over a 35' long solid oak table.  The vines were creeping down the stone, arched, ceiling... twisting down into 5 separate chandeliers over the table; spectacular.  But that's another post.
