My philosophy is “why carve and make stuff if it is already available?” Ornamental iron is a great example. These signs use ornamental iron work from King Ornamental Metals. They’re pot metal ornaments made for railings and fences. They’re meant to be welded on wrought iron fences as decorative ornaments.

These two signs were made for the lobby of the Columbia Gorge Hotel, which is a beautiful old hotel built in 1921. I wanted to do something appropriate that would fit with the building’s architecture, and the ornamental metal components did the job.
