Cord and Beau took it to the homeowners and installed it together. These particular clients are a joy to work for as they love Cord's iron and give him lots of artistic freedom. He is a Master Blacksmith after all - this is what he does for a living.
So I caught this picture of him painting the highlights with his fingers - he definitely gets to know each piece.
He highlighted it with a bronze color on the sunflower and a silver color on the frame. It just jumped to life.
The sunflower pieces were quite difficult to land but as you can see - they are weaved together and riveted. Rivets can really bring something together in a most artistic way. It's the kind of piece you look at and look at to try to figure out how he did that!
I claim to be Cord's biggest fan - I know what he can do - I even know what he can do that he hasn't done yet - his own masterpieces.
This is a beautiful glimpse at his fluid lines, his love of nature and even an ability to keep any sized dog in or out! What a wonderful way to go.
Here it is installed - with a flash - in the dark!
That would look great in MY garden!
