For this railing, Enyart Forge worked closely with the project architect and designer to develop the custom balusters used in the build. Under their guidance, we developed a set of samples for the customer to choose from. These samples included a variety of materials, decorative elements, textures, and finishes. The sample they chose had a light texture, decorative twists, and a bronze collar. The finish is an antiqued black patina with hand-rubbed highlights. The patina can be expected to continue to develop as the years pass, bringing even more beauty to the project.
How it’s Made
While we can’t reveal the exact process used, we can tell you that each baluster in this project underwent a series of 15 different steps to bring it from raw material to a finished project. We developed a special set of tooling for our power hammer to get the details just right.
