Generously sized curved hook handmade from brass with brass wall screw. Made by young Australian duo Rowsaan in their workshop in Kyneton, in the Macedon ranges near Melbourne. They use a combination of silversmithing, blacksmithing and jewellery techniques, with forging as the primary process. Their work is hand forged using hammers on anvil and stakes – a methodical process that gradually forms the metal and the piece begins to emerge under the hammer. The process of forging means it allows for simple but complex little objects; Rowan and Saan are able to manipulate metal in subtle ways like tapering, thinning, thickening, fanning and dishing affording the piece a high level of detail. The outcome is detailed and individually varied small objects which are nice to hold, touch and study – they are understated and simple and celebrate daily domestic rituals. Made in Australia. Sold individually.
