I have been busy with a collection of cogs gears clacker valves , gangle sockets and various widgets from my favorite supplier….. The local scrap yard.

Add that , together with some carefully considered and designed,  laser cut parts and fully conforming electrical wiring , and you may end up with a highly unusual table lamp. as featured in the images above.

I hand make all the lighting and I am happy to work to commission . Just email or call.  I am happy to help if I can.

I lost my industrial bottle with the black finish , and went for a slightly more friendly blue.

The original steel stool had a chemi black finish , which is a finish that is used for industrial finishing bolts , fittings and fixtures. Hardcore industrial , still available as an option .

My phone shot , by  contrast, lacking in depth, focus, vision and a total disregard for heath and safety , as I was taking this shot with my ringing phone whilst holding a lit oxy propane torch with an attached ‘pepper pot’ nozzle in the other hand.

This flame image  shows the hot clasps of steel being bent around the scrolls on my handmade metal beds. It also show the steel washers that are cut to size to hold the glass marbles.

I have a sort of image tutorial on my face book page ( facebook search, adrianreynolds.co.uk  , and like ,  or  https://www.facebook.com/adrianreynolds.co.uk?fref=ts)   on how to make the hot clasps of steel that bind the scrolls together , together with the use of simple steel washers to hold the decorative glass marbles, in this glass marble bed.

Its to prove I hand make the beds in the UK , and to pass on a little knowledge and interest to those who would like to know.

Today I have been making prototype industrial hooks for a barn to office conversion, with an industrial theme.This vintage hook style is quirky and trendy and certainly make a statement. The decorative hooks are rated for 1/4 tonne, so they should manage a hat and coat, I hope. I will also be making these as 3 and 5 hooks in a row.

Meanwhile in grungy Shoreditch I made a prototype triple hook combination for a trendy shop. They loved it.

 

 

The hooks will come with 2 color matched flat screws (not pozi drive as pictured) . To install, put the included screws through the holes in the unit and screw it into the wall. This unit is best mounted to wood, or a wall stud batton, or could be fitted with plasterboard screws to a cavity wall. I am always keen to make new products and I should have photographed this with Flat head screws ,or coach screws which would show a hexagonal nut head, more in keeping with this vintage industrial look.
