Designed and individually hand made to order at the Coach House Forge, England - these unique bowls make a stunning addition to any home.

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 are the largest Bowls we can make at the forge, measuring 12" (310mm) in diameter and standing 3" (75mm) high. They are forged from 1/8" (3mm) thick iron sheet and weigh over (4.0 lb) 1.8Kg. A flattened base ensures that the Bowl sits securely on any level surface.

Once shaped and formed at the anvil, the Bowls are left in the red hot forge for 20 - 30 minutes - the heat soaks through the metal developing a unique patina on the surface of the metal. We call this the 'Crackled' finish.

Once cooled, they are treated with several coats of 'Renaissance Wax' to create an attractive and protective finish. The real beauty of the textured iron shines through.

Each Bowl is 'signed' on the outside rim using the Coach House Forge makers mark.

We can make this Bowl extra special for you - Your piece can be personalised to create a totally unique gift - We can hand stamp up to 100 numbers / letters on the Bowl. Maybe a special date, initials, name or quote - Please leave your requested text in the 'Personalisation' box at checkout.

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!
