The other morning Dan came in as usual opening the factory up early, the sunrise and shadows were just right and he took this snapshot of the ‘Span’ Marquette against the wall…. I think it’s a pretty brilliant photo and just had to share it… 😀👌😯

Well, that’s the door closed on 2021! 😬 Hasn’t it been such a crazy unprecedented year? We thought 2020 was pretty nuts, but with such crazy lockdowns, manufacturing restrictions, travel and so much time missed out catching up with friends and family….
Words cannot express the appreciation to our magnificent clients for everything, the fantastic other businesses that we work alongside with - some for an extremely long time and some fantastic new connections made along this year - thanks to everyone, you’re only ever as strong as the people you surround yourself with and we’re feeling pretty great! 💪😀👌
We have finally opened the bar at our Reservoir premises ( @highandwildmelbourne ) after a lot of hard work, and we couldn’t be happier…

Happy new year everyone and bring on 2022, here’s to it being a fantastic one full of new connections and great times 😀🙏☺️

Bit of a personal post, but with the human element and the kudos deserved I had to shout out ☺️.

It’s been a crazy journey the last couple of decades since I first became part of The Red Falcon and add to that us creating our pet project bar High & Wild all the way through to now with such an unbeatable team for both… with uncountable hours and sooooo much work created and executed.

I’ve just had five minutes to stop and think about it all and I just wanted to say THANKYOU to my family for constantly helping and being there for me, good times and bad, believing in me and being there beside me late nights, weekends, whenever!

My kids are amazing, it’s been such an epic journey it’s almost comical how young they were when we started😳😂 and the pics show a few insights into how much has actually been done ( they’re completely all grown up now, and amazing! 🤣) maybe was a weird way to grow up - but I love you and couldn’t have done it without you! 😀

Pet project that feels like it has been in the making forever is almost over the line… new signs up in the light box, working day after day late into the night can be seen admiring our work with new co-owners Jess and Pete ( a dynamic duo with a seemingly endless skill repertoire in advertising, marketing, business, bar management and directing… so happy to have them on the team!!!😀🙏☺️ ) cool shot of James and Ben in the early hours of the morning making the ceiling finish come together and lastly the back shelving is almost looking like a real bar! 😯😂👌

Thanks so much to every person that gave up their weekends, late nights, sleep, blood, sweat and tears to help us with so many crazy elements to get where we are… without you it wouldn’t exist!

Thanks so much to our fantastic clients over this crazy Covid journey, it’s been an unprecedented bumpy ride and you are all the best! 🙏😀
Latest install for one of those amazing clients, one of the nicest blokes getting around!
Created a giant entrance door to his property (the photos just don’t do the size justice) laser cut design to match a Japanese influence that he really liked and natural rust finish. Looks killer! Super happy with the final install 😀👌

Special thanks for your help as always to the fantastic team @jonda.sheetmetal brilliant laser cutting work! 😀
We have had a long history working together on projects, they are so great to work alongside with - nothing is ever an issue, fantastic team!

While we’re known mostly for producing the highest quality wrought iron because of our history and blacksmithing, we are also well renowned for our traditional natural finishes… no nasty chemical treatments! 😀
Not a bad shot eh? No filter here either! ☺️👌

From concept to reality….
Glycol chilled flavored vodka dispensing system, mirror polished stainless steel.
You may have seen a couple of them in various configurations around Melbourne and Brisbane bars… we’re always keen to bring brilliant concepts to life! 😀👌

#itsallinthedetails #realwroughtiron
When you have the traditional skills based in multi-generational blacksmithing through to modern fabrication techniques, you can really stand out.
Far from limited to traditional styles, nothing is impossible to create.
Not made offshore, all done by us here in Melbourne with our clients the only priority in each project, we are extremely proud of our work in a world less focused on aesthetics and quickly forgetting so many lost trades…

Very clean and minimalist balustrade with a traditional natural waxed finish (no powder coat to be seen here!😂) including matching gate to keep the kids safe 😀👌
Handrail polishes up nice doesn’t it? 😀✨😎
With @bqarchitects this brilliant Hamptons inspired townhouse just looks fantastic, even better clients to work with! 😊😊

Window and double doors, slim profile steel, double glazed and completely framed with countersunk fixings that fit so nice they disappear….
We do a lot more than traditional wrought iron work - very happy with the minimal design, great project, great clients 😀👌☺️

Hope everyone has the BEST cup long weekend (if you’re lucky enough to string it together 😀) seems like Melbourne is going to put on its best as far as the weather goes 🤞🙏☀️☀️☀️😀…
Just wanting to say a huge THANKYOU!!! To all of our amazing clients for their understanding and epic patience over the last couple of insane months with, lockdowns, restrictions, “you might have been near a person, so now you have to quarantine for two weeks…” 🙄 varied hold ups here and there, you can’t go certain places or do certain things…….😬🙄🙄

The wonderful weather is here, we’re free, 100% into it, not being held back and fired up!!! 🔥⚒😀👌

Have the best weekend, have a blast catching up with friends and family and stay safe! 🙏😁☀️

Recreation of wine cellar doors for some wonderful clients…
Copying the original design doors which had fallen apart ( photo included of the original “wrought ironwork” showing the comparative difference between products ) still to be finally detailed once wine cellar works are completed, but very happy with these smooth doors! 😌😀
Thanks to all of our clients for their patience and understanding through all of these lockdowns and restrictions, we definitely get to work with the best people! 😀

Bit of a flashback, lots of great work creating and sorting out so many elements back in the day for the @kewpiefitzroy , with everything hopefully starting to open up again here in Melbourne - let’s get out there and support our hospo’ industry a little and enjoy catching up with friends in familiar places again! 😀👌

How many scrolls can you fit in a security door? 😅👍
A shot before collars, detailing, final finish and the install… when you handcraft something the labor is the largest component by far but also the best part! 😀🔥⚒👌

Another design to final installed product, quite a while back now for the amazing @chateaucoutureinteriors . Thanks for all of your positive words on here Sandie, these were some of the first lights I ever made when starting out with Kevin in the early 2000’s - loved immersing in the detail, the glass textured and slumped tops, not to mention all the other great things we worked on!
This again just shows off the attention to detail on our creations, and still absolutely loving every bit of it! 😀👌
