Rhythm in an Art Nouveau Balcony

We brought movement to the long lines of this balcony railing with a horizontal line that breaks out of the linear. A clean-lined leaf motif in large and small pattern creates a horizontal motion that catches the eye with apparent free movement within a strict geometry. Connections on this railing are hot-split for the vertical members to pass through, which creates an interesting bulge in the member where the chisel is driven through hot iron, and a banding connection wraps the railing sections to the wide triple post members.
