Forged and Polished Bronze Door Handles

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Tennessee, USA 2015

These silicon bronze handles were commissioned to fit a pair of glass doors in Maryville USA where they would be seen from both sides. This meant they needed to be made almost identical. Since the bronze moves when hammered, carefully matching up was needed as they were forged to shape.

The handles were given a deep lustrous polish to enhance the natural beauty and tones of the bronze. However, care was taken not to completely smooth away the natural texture arising from forging and hammering them to shape. Each handle displays an individuality and unique character whilst all four handles still match and mirror each other.
