Article by artist, Eileen Webb titled ''Doggie Gate'' on the 2000 NOMMA gold top job commission - her first gate. Originally written for other metal artists & fabricators as a useful satire, it appeared in NOMMA's Fabricator magazine in the fall of 2000. Designed & fabricated by Eileen Webb of Los Angeles - this unique art deco steel gate has typical decorative design themes: palms, lotus, lightening bolts & chevrons suggested by the client. The commission was a pioneering project pushing the limits of art & technology using CAD/ CAM developed by the artist, herself. Entirely cut from 1/2" steel plate & #304 stainless steel, the main panel is weldless. The commission was assembled in 3 hours by a contractor without any instructions.
