Iron monograms

Valencia's architectural style offers a lot of ornamental iron work, along with a lot of tile (they even put decorative tile on the underside of little outdoor outdoor balconies!).  Often an elaborate iron gate in a doorway includes the initials of the building's title. 

B + V 
G + B

J + C + M

A beautiful example.

  1. Wow. I love these. I think about how hard I work with just a pen, and my mind boggles that this was done in metal.

    Thank you for your posts; I truly enjoy them.
