Wrought Iron Gate - "Tree of Knowledge"

This wrought iron gate is made of hand forged steel with a painted graphite finish. The apple and seed pods were hand raised from soft brass - a technique used to cold form objects using repeated blows with specialized hammers and stakes. The serpent was hot forged from 1" solid copper bar and finished with a Verde patina.
