Brass

Some of our Brass products have mirror-polished surfaces, others are un-lacquered, hand-beaten and intentionally imperfect. A testament to the flexibility and versatility of the metal. Our Spun, fluted champagne bucket, for example, is cut from brass sheet and pressed on huge 20 ton presses, then welded together before being ground down by abrasive wheels, spun on antique lathes and then polished to a mirror finish. Conversely, our Bash bowls are hand-beaten from ultra-thin brass sheet. We also use thin brass sheets to clad our Mass Table - a traditional metal cladding technique in India called Kavacha.

“Imagine the complexity involved and ingenuity required in the manufacture of the simplest, most familiar and banal trumpet, with its valves, plungers and curves. You can tell I am still in childlike awe of how stuff is made.” Tom Dixon

What to expect from our brass products

Surface tarnish, spots and patina are characteristics of Brass. Because we use hand-made and finished manufacturing processes and many of our products are not lacquered, the brass will tarnish. Even if lacquered, brass will eventually tarnish naturally in air and spots and patches will begin to show over months. However, polishing can restore the brass to a bright shine, removing the original factory matte finish as well as the tarnish marks.
