|New Fence, Gate, and Lanterns by Potter Art Metal Studios|
You'd be surprised what a difference a new wrought iron gate and fence can do for your property. I even have a before and after photo to help illustrate my point.
I loved designing the new custom made wrought iron gates (with solid brass details), fence and brass lighting for a residential building off Sherry Lane and Douglas, in Dallas. Our client wanted a new and fabulous look for his two entrances, and so we jumped right in! It was a great opportunity to make some really nice, large scale, and heavy gates. The pair of gates on one side of the multi-story building open in and the one pictured above is actually a slider which we made look like a matching pair; I thought they would look much more grand and inviting this way. The lanterns have matching wrought iron brackets with a beautiful solid brass body. They are proportioned to the existing posts.

The fence is actually quite simple, but very effective. I love the elegant scrolls on the top; we made sure that all the scrolls were forged to a tip and had a lovely flow to them; otherwise the effect would not work and the fence would look like any off the shelf fencing out there.

The original gate was too light weight and did not have much of an actual design; it was your regular off the shelf looking gate. Because the building itself looks quite commercial, the gate did also. Our client's visitors would constantly mistake the building for a commercial one and drive right past it; he wanted an impressive entrance so that all he'd have to say is "You'll know you're there when you see the gates." ...and he got exactly what he wanted.
