Punching and pegging: age-old blacksmithing techniques, contemporary look
The forged features on this candlestick, with its punched holes pegged with forged nails, illustrate perfectly how we use traditional blacksmithing techniques to create a contemporary look.
The rounded edges to the holes through the upright are the proof that they have been traditionally punched. If they had just been drilled, the edges would have remained flat and lifeless. The hand forged nails that hold the arms in place look so much more distinctive and attractive than ugly and soulless welding.
