Caerphilly Castle gates and railings

 

Commissioned by CADW these gates and railings are located next to the visitors centre at the entrance to Caerphilly castle and depict historical characters linked to the castle,  Gilbert De Clare, Gilbert De Clare the younger, Eleanor De Clare,  Hugh Le Despenser and John Critchon-Stuart. The imagery was laser cut from stainless steel and set into wrought iron frames which were produced by Blacksmith Glen Adams, at Horizon Forge in Llanbradach. Stained glass inserts placed throughout the railings and gates cast colourful light at different times of the day whilst the shadows created by the laser cut panels project onto the walls and floor.
