Designed and individually hand made here at the Coach House Forge, these unique bowls are a beautiful fusion of Iron and Copper.

Each Bowl is formed 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.

These large centrepiece Bowls measure 11 1/2 " (290mm) in diameter and stand 2 1/2" (70mm) high. They are forged from 1/8" (3mm) thick iron sheet and weigh over (3.5 lb) 1.6Kg

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 touch mark.

We can make this Bowl extra special for you - Your bowl can be personalised to create a totally unique gift - We can hand stamp up to 10 numbers / letters on the underside of the Bowl. Maybe a special date, initials or name - Please leave your requested text in the 'Personalisation' box at checkout.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

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!

Custom and personalised orders

I do not engrave!!!

Due to the fact that each letter is individually stamped by hand, text may not always perfectly align. I'm not a machine, but I do have a highly trained eye! I'm sure you appreciate that this is the real beauty of hand made work!

Please make sure you let me know of any particular preferences regarding the layout of your message, otherwise I will use my best artistic judgment.

I usually spot spellink mistukes but cannot be held responsible if I stamp a message that does have typo's or grammatical errors!

Thanks!
