Wednesday, June 17, 2015

I was absolutely fascinated with these doors when I saw them. They inspire me as a jeweler :)  I also would not mind having a door like this in my home! Which one is your favorite?

Gorgeous! A real opportunity for iron workers to show off their skills. On a door-related theme I thought you might be interested in this little bit of trivia re. St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin
"Legend has it that Saint Patrick's was the origin of the expression "chancing your arm" (meaning to take a risk), when Gerald Mór FitzGerald, 8th Earl of Kildare, cut a hole in a door there, still to be seen, and thrust his arm through it as a symbol of trust, in an effort to call a truce in the Butler – Fitzgerald dispute with another Earl, James of Ormond, in 1492".

Those churches have the best looking and most intricate details of any door hinges. I would like to thank you for noticing this and featuring this on your blog.

Thank you for the feedback Jerry! I work with metal (not in this scale though) and appreciate beautiful metalwork.
