These beautiful, large Steel Bowls are a real statement piece, the perfect 6th Iron Anniversary gift for all lovers of handmade metalwork. Each bowl has been shaped by repeated heating and hammering using traditional skills and tools. No two will ever be alike, the subtle differences brought about during the forging process - that's the beauty of hand made work.
I make 3 Bowl sizes and this listing is for the largest which measures 200mm (8") in diameter and stands 40mm (1.5") high. The metal is 3mm (1/8th") thick meaning that the bowl is a heavyweight, tipping the scales at approximately 800g (1 3/4Ib). These are really substantial and will last for generations!
The inside edge of each bowl has been cleaned and polished to create a uniquely contemporary look. This design also enables any personalised text to be tastefully accentuated. The forged Bowls are then treated with several coats of 'Renaissance Wax' to create an attractive and protective patina.
Each Bowl is 'signed' on the base using the Coach House Forge touchmark.
Interestingly, each bowl rings like a bell if tapped on the rim - used to announce dinner time in my house!

I only use natural products to treat the iron. All items are treated with either Coconut Oil or 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. I recommend that you occasionally treat the iron with beeswax or similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the iron looking tip top. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the iron then over time, and if there is significant moisture in the air, rust spots may begin to appear. if this does happen gently remove the rust with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention the ironwork will last for centuries!
