Lakeview Patio

Perched majestically on a bluff overlooking the scenic Lake Erie, this outdoor patio, adorned with fencing of unparalleled craftsmanship, stands as a testament to Hubbell Galvanizing’s expertise in galvanizing work. The visionary owner, well-acquainted with quality craftsmanship, envisioned a fence that would harmonize with the expansive views of the lake.

Andy Chambers, the skilled fabricator behind this masterpiece, expressed his admiration for the homeowner’s discerning taste and appreciation for handcrafted excellence. Over the course of 5 years, Chambers had been diligently forging hand-made iron, and the trust placed in his craftsmanship was indeed exceptional.

Every panel of the fence, meticulously hand-forged at the Arc Iron Creations forge in Buffalo, NY, reflects a commitment to detail and exceptional artistry. The owner’s desire for a fence exuding distinctive, handcrafted beauty, absent in mass-produced items, found its realization through the dedicated efforts of Andy Chambers.

Given the outdoor setting and proximity to a swimming pool, corrosion protection and enduring service life were paramount considerations. Here, galvanizing emerged as the artist’s choice, providing a robust shield against corrosion. To enhance the visual allure, the artist opted for a Sculpt Nouveau patina, etched onto the galvanized surface and sealed with polyurethane. This meticulous process not only yielded a deep, rich finish but also allowed the inherent spangle of galvanizing to subtly shine through.

The result left the owner thoroughly impressed, prompting a further commission. Enthralled by the artistry, the owner extended the collaboration to fabricate supports with the same exquisite finish for the adjacent outdoor barbecue table. In this project, Hubbell Galvanizing’s galvanizing work played a crucial role in preserving both the beauty and longevity of this handcrafted masterpiece.
