A17 A Blacksmith Made Metal Bowl

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

Made to Commission

The bowl was made by forging heavy duty steel plate into shape, then splitting it down the middle. Its two halves were joined using hidden dowels which pass through the forged copper centre piece and polished bronze spacers.

The steel was then burnished with a wire brush to enhance the rich natural texture and character displayed by its surface. As a counterpoint to this, the edges of the bowl were given a bright satin finish. The copper centre piece was deeply polished, though care was taken not to smooth out its hammer marks and the bronze spacers were also highly polished. The ensemble is a wonderful blend of complementary yet contrasting metals and finishes

The bowl is 280mm across
