Rippling fluid surface. 50m straight railings in 2m sections, 100mm maximum gaps. Steel galvanised and powder coated. To British Standards I did not want anything to literal, just the essence of the sea, wind and rolling landscapes, with plenty of movement. The railings are made up of straight top and bottom rails and the uprights are all the same radius, each one spins around about 10 degrees and leans over in increments. A simple idea but hard to achieve cleanly
