The Button Bowl
Designed by Blacksmith Chris at Coach House Forge, these unique bowls are a beautiful fusion of Iron and Copper.
Every Bowl is individually hand forged by repeated heating and hammering using traditional skills and tools. No two bowls will ever be alike, the subtle differences brought about during the forging process – that’s the beauty of hand made work.
These large centrepiece Bowls measure 250mm (10″) in diameter and stand 50mm (2″) high. They are forged from 3mm (1/8″) thick iron sheet and weigh over 1.2kg (3.0 lb)
The metal has been cut with a chisel, whilst red hot, and forged into shape with great care and patience. The cut ends of the Bowl have been overlapped and re-joined using 3 solid copper rivets. The hammered rivet heads measure approx. 12mm (1/2″) in diameter.
The Bowls are then left in the red hot forge for some time – this develops the unique patina on the surface of the metal.
Once cooled, they are treated with several coats of ‘Renaissance Wax’ to create an attractive and protective finish. The real beauty of the iron and copper shines through.
Each Bowl is ‘signed’ on the base using the Coach House Forge makers mark.
Your bowl can be personalised to create a totally unique gift for your anniversary or special occasion. I can hand stamp your message using individual vintage letter & number punches.
