This is a grille that I made for a wine cellar in a Greenwich, Connecticut house. It was designed to cover the duct of the climate control system for the wine cellar.  The grille is made of riveted half lap joints where the metal is forged to half its thickness so that the joint is flush with the faces of the bars. 



The grape bunches were made from pure iron using repoussť. The grapes were formed by progressively pushing the grapes out from the back and defining them from the front. After the grapes were blocked out, the bunch of grapes was chiseled out from the parent piece of sheet metal. The grapes were then planished over a stake.

The leaves were hand chased and shaped hot over a wood block.
