The culmination of a large proportion of the material work with Wallpaper in the Grapes public house is this balustrade. As set from the image displayed in Perforated Wallpaper this balustrade is set to frame the view of the River Thames as described in Two Corridors using the layering techniques of two of the original wallpapers as set in Wallpaper Amalgamation. The balustrade itself is copper coated acrylic as shown in Fake Copper, but in practice would be waterjet cut copper. The two patterns as well as creating a visual screen also act as structural aids to each other to mean that the balustrade could span the width of the Grapes.

To further the amagamation of two of the wallpaper patterns taken from the Grapes public house, shown in post Wallpaper Amalgamation, both patterns were laser cut in MDF and overlaid on top of each other. This gives a two dimensional thing new three dimensional properties. It also creates new pattern of its own, especially due to the perforation inducing moments of revalation.
