Launching our NEW Limited Editions range
The NEW Limited Editions Series showcases the Blacksmiths at Coach House Forge; their inspirations, their talents and their imaginations to create one-off small collections of beautiful, forged, functional and heir-loom crafted pieces for any occasion.
Inspired by Astronomy and Physics the ‘Star Bowl’ was designed and created by Chris Danby; Blacksmith and founder of Coach House Forge. The design fuses his fascination with modern science and the industrial innovation of the Victorian era to produce these minimal pieces of homeware.
Chris took the shape of the humble star, cut it out of sheet metal heating it multiple times to a very high heat. He then uses one of his antique Victorian Fly-presses to persuade the metal to take on a new form, knowing that the deep bowl is harder to produce, Chris expects that each of the bowls would be exquisitely different from the last.
A single star bowl, one in a collection of 6 pieces, which can be used to hold a single votive candle, a dish for small everyday objects or to sit an object d’art. This limited one-off collection of iron star bowls has been birthed by fire and pressed into their own shape, by hand, using a Victorian Fly-press. The resulting shapes are reminiscent of the popular Victorian ‘Handkerchief’ glassware bowls.
The second release in the Celestial Collection is the ‘Flare Bowl’ designed and created by Adrian Smith, Blacksmith.
There are 6 pieces in the collection which can be used as an objet d’art or a functional statement piece, in which you can display items, or use as a bowl for keeping your everyday treasures safe.
This limited one-off collection of Flare bowls has been made using hide hammer and peen hammers to shape repeatedly until its final form.
The results are a tactile bowl with a deep, darkened and smooth centre with a contrasting dotted rim that flares out confidently surrounding the bowl.
