Forged By Hand



Forged, by hand. A lost art?  Thankfully, ‘Hubbardton Forge, an American manufacturer of hand forged iron lighting fixtures, first fired up the Forge in a drafty old barn in the town of Hubbardton in 1974. The Vermont based company scavenged through New England gathering rusting anvils, trip hammers, swage blocks and other discarded tools of the trade in order to revive the nearly forgotten craft of hand-forging raw metal into functional art.’ I enjoyed discovering their collection which includes these handmade, one of a kind lighting fixtures. Simple and architectural, and at once modern and rustic. Lighting integrated into the metal and glass housing, these pieces are artwork for any room.
