E4: Contemporary Metal Chandelier

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

The Assembly, Didsbury 

A contemporary metal chandelier commissioned for "The Assembly", a South Manchester wine bar.

The main spine of the chandelier was made from various steel ribbings that were forged to shape, then joined with copper rivets in hot punched holes. Hammering the steel to shape whilst hot gives the metal an attractive rich natural worked texture. This has been burnished and waxed, highlighting its tones and surface textures.

The drip trays were made from patinated copper.
