A New Arrival!
Welcome to Mary Sanford Robinson born on February 7, 2007, the same day as her great grandfather, Joseph H.Robinson, Senior was born. This coincidence coupled with the fact that she is a daughter makes her very special indeed. You see, the Robinson family happens to have been blessed with more than its share of sons over the years. Mary Sanford’s parents, Luke S. Robinson and Emily Truitt Robinson along with her big brother Truitt Richard Robinson (age three) are excited about her arrival and have plans to make her the center of their attentions. Grandparents Richard H. Robinson and Elizabeth Petrey Robinson and great grandparents Dr. Donald Sanford Petrey and Elizabeth Horne Petrey are most thankful mother and daughter are healthy and at home. Note: Luke Robinson is Director of Sales for Robinson Iron. Emily Robinson assists with special Marketing Projects for the firm.

Project Update – Fairmount’s Cliff Path Railing
Robinson’s Winter 2005 Portfolio Vol. 3 featured our work-in- progress on the historic cliff path railing at Fairmount Water Works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. We thought you, our readers, deserved to see the finished product. Each twist and turn of the railing required a custom pattern created just for that location. Hopefully you’ll agree the effect is a stunning and an exact replica of what was originally installed in the early 1800’s.

Forever Summer
Westhaven Fountain first appeared in Robinson’s Summer 2006 Portfolio Vol. 5 and created such a stir we thought we’d share it with you again. As the centerpiece of a new development by Southern Land Company this large scale cast iron fountain gives the neighborhood a “grace note” and a gathering place. The fountain has been such a success Southern Land is investing in a similar fountain for their newest venture Tucker Hill located in McKinney, Texas

Art in the Park
Houston designer, Kelly Amen hits the streets in 2007 with a new line of art furniture expressly made for public spaces. Intended to be sleek, functional and durable they are fabricated in waterjet cut aluminum and fancifully finished in a variety of colorful textured patterns. Benches covered in bright spatter yellows and intense spatter greens sit beside chairs decorated in splotches of brown, evergreen and sand. For those more inclined to look heavenward there is a bench finished in Orbital Blue. All this makes for a lively streetscape, park or gallery installation bringing broad smiles and a moment’s rest to all. Kelly’s signature collection of Art Furniture is manufactured by Robinson Iron and marketed by his firm, K.G.A. See these extraordinary pieces on his website www.kellygaleamen.com
