Hand-beaten metals are amongst the hallmarks of the Arts & Crafts aesthetic. The dappled texture—evidence of human artistic involvement—reflects light in a warm and wonderful way. Shown above, part of our collection of hand-hammered copper, each piece raised from a single ingot of the metal. No forms are used. A “lump” of copper is beaten (or raised) using only an anvil, a pair of tongs and a variety of hammers (each suitable for a different hammering task). Great artistry is required to raise the piece, achieve the proper, balanced form, create (fairly) even walls, and to create any required surface embellishment.
