OUR BRONZE WORK PACKAGE AT SHAKESPEARE’S NEW PLACE.
FABRICATING NEW LIFE INTO NEW PLACE.
WE WERE DELIGHTED TO ATTEND A GARDEN PARTY ON THE 6TH SEPTEMBER AT NEW PLACE IN STRATFORD UPON AVON WITH THE SHAKESPEARE BIRTHPLACE TRUST.
HERE ARE SOME PHOTO'S OF OUR FINISHED BRONZEWORK:
We are undertaking the bronze work at William Shakespeare's House - New Place Museum which is adjacent to Nash House. Pictures above are taken from the model.
The Phosphorous Bronze Work includes: a Well in the garden, Main Entrance Doors, Canopy leading into the garden, Curved Phosphorous Bronze Arc Inlays in the paving, Planters, Box Hedge windows and the Flag Pole for Shakespeare's Family Crest.
The site of New Place - was the second largest house in Stratford when it was bought by William Shakespeare in 1597. It is believed that he wrote his later plays at New Place, including The Tempest. It is also the place where Shakespeare died in 1616.
“To be chosen for this heritage landmark and be involved in the transformation of New Place, is truly and honour and a testament to the team members who will be involved, and who have been specifically selected as a result of their exquisite craftsmanship. We are so excited to be involved in this wonderful project and walk where Shakespeare walked, on the site of the only home he ever owned.
The New Place project commemorates the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in April 2016."
"I am proud to be part of team of Victoria John, and creating masterpieces with these beautiful materials is very exciting and inspiring. Exceeding the expectations of our Clients at a completion of a project, is a reward in itself. Victoria John of London can help turn the Clients' vision, into a reality and I look forward to experiencing many more great things in the life of Jovic."
Shakespeare's Birthplace Trust says "Shakespeare’s New Place is being transformed. It is the site of the only home he ever bought and is being created into a major new heritage landmark where you can let your imagination soar as Shakespeare’s did, in the very place where he lived for 19 years.
Shakespeare’s New Place will enter a new chapter as the jewel in the crown of our literary and cultural heritage, at the heart of the worldwide celebrations of 400 years of Shakespeare's legacy in 2016. The re-imagination of this unique site will be the single most significant and enduring Shakespearian project anywhere in the world to commemorate the anniversary of his death in April 2016"

The COR-TEN Steel for the Planter for the Shakespeare’s Project has arrived at Jovic's works.
The Steel is Grade - COR-TEN A
Quality Specifications – ATMOSPHERIC CORROSION-RESISTANT HSLA STEEL
COR-TEN® Steel (Weathering steel) is a group of steel alloys which were developed to remove the need for painting, by forming a stable rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather for several years. Weathering Steel never completely stops rusting but eventually lessens and the rust finish then acts as a protective coating for the steel.
COR-TEN® Steel resists the corrosive effects of atmospheric conditions such as rain, snow, ice, fog, by forming a coating of dark brown oxidation (Rust) over the metal, which prevents deeper penetration thus removing the need for painting and rust-prevention maintenance.
Simply put: When exposed to the weather, this steel is allowed to rust and that rust forms a protective coating that slows the rate of future corrosion. This protective coating (Rust) essentially stops the corrosion.
