Designed and hand made at the Coach House Forge, England in 2019. This is a truly one-off, contemporary Bowl made using traditional forging techniques. Perfect as an 11th Anniversary Gift.

The steel has been heavily textured, whilst red hot, using a hand hammer and anvil. After numerous 'heats', the forged metal has been cut from one edge to the centre and then the Bowl shape has been formed. Where the edges overlap the metal has been joined using solid copper handmade 'staples'.

The unique and contemporary finish has been achieved through meticulous hand sanding - removing the outer layer of metal to highlight the textured surface formed by the hammer blows.

Whilst still hot, the bowl has been sealed with a conservation grade wax to form a protective patina.


This piece measures 9" (230mm) in diameter and stands 2" (50mm)high. Forged from 1/8" (3mm) Steel sheet the Bowl weighs 2Ibs (1Kg)

A truly original centrepiece for your home. Also a fantastic 11th Steel Anniversary or 7th Copper Anniversary Gift.


Of course, this is functional art so the Bowl can be used as a 'catch-all' for everything from treasured jewellery to candy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

We only use natural products to finish the metal. All forged pieces are treated with Beeswax and 'Renaissance Wax' to provide a protective and attractive finish. We do recommend that you occasionally treat the metal with Beeswax or a similar natural polish, this will build a beautiful patina and keep the piece looking great. Simply apply some wax and buff to a high shine.
As no lacquers or paints are used to treat the metal 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 spots with wire wool and apply a coat of natural wax as detailed above. Given a little care and attention your piece will last for generations!
