NOMMA gold top job award 2000 - for this project!Return to Main Gallery
This residential art deco steel entry gate was designed & created by the artist in an art deco borzoi design 
for her clients.  More reasonably priced & aesthetic steel entry for their 1922 “fixer upper”  home & the first gate project
for the artist,  it was recognized for excellence in architectural metals with a Gold Ernest Wiemann Top Job
award from NOMMA, the National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association in 2000.

The images here chronicle much of the overall project, from CAD design, to end result - a streamlined & autonomous
controlled use of outsource manufacturing.  While the  gate is cut intact from 1/2” steel plate,  it serves as an
example of how machine can successfully bridge the cost gap created by the demise of hand craft,
particularly blacksmithing in industrialized & urban regions around the world as cars replaced carriages.
It in reality, along with other engineering technologies serves as a basis for this artists continuing
romance - marrying traditional art & modern applied science  - “making machines sing”.
