One of the components I use to enhance my designs is decorative hardware, not only that it then draws in another skilled profession, blacksmiths/metal fabricators. But I think it increases the scope of design and beauty Also it is growing increasing difficult to get decorative Art and Crafts and Art Nouveux hardware as overseas imports offen value the cheapest price over design and craftsmanship.
As a result I have started designing and making some of my own, So far in hand carved wooden hinges and copper decorative hinges. I am developing further designs to create a stocked range.
I also stock a range of bought hardware from various suppliers.
