METAL ART DESIGNS


THE USE OF FINIALS IN DECORATIVE METAL ART DESIGNS HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MAINSTAY FOR CRAFTSMAN, THE PINNACLE OR FINALE OF AN OVERALL OBJECT.

NOTHING CATCHES THE EYE BETTER THAN A VERY UNIQUE FINIAL, WHETHER IT IS ON A DECORATIVE GATE, OR PERCHED ATOP AN ELEGANT LAMP, FINIALS ARE THE STAND ALONE CREATIVE EXTENSIONS OF ART.

METAL ART DESIGNS

THE PICTURE ABOVE IS A PENCIL SKETCH OF A FINIAL DESIGN THAT IS USUALLY USED ON LAMP WORK, SPECIFICALLY A BRIDGE LAMP. VERY ORNAMENTAL IN CHARACTER, A FREE-FLOWING FORM OF SCROLL AND LEAFWORK COMMON IN THE VICTORIAN ERA.

I HAVE BEEN PONDERING SOME PROJECT IDEAS FOR THIS ONE, ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE BEST USED IN A LIGHTING APPLICATION, MAYBE SOMETHING DIFFERENT MIGHT LEAD INTO A UNIQUE ACCENT PIECE. ENDS FOR A TAPESTRY OR CURTAIN ROD MIGHT GO WELL WITH THIS DESIGN, OR MAYBE THE FINISHING TOUCH ON A COAT RACK. THESE HANDCRAFTED DESIGNS CAN BE USED IN MANY DIFFERENT METAL ART CREATIONS, I WILL CERTAINLY POST AN IMAGE OF THIS PARTICULAR DESIGN WHEN IT EVOLVES INTO A FINISHED OBJECT.
