Ely Cathedral

Design Development
A set of gates were required for the South aisle of Ely Cathedral, fitted to Norman stonework, to control the flow of visitors. The client’s preference was for ironwork based on the very ancient gates at Winchester Cathedral, and the concept sketch design was by the cathedral architect. Within the constraints of the brief, we attempted to create a piece worthy of this august setting. The aim was for delicacy of detail, often a feature of church ironwork, with interest added in a rather more modern way, by the increasing density of the scrollwork from the top toward the floor.
