Holiday Cheer

Some of our most fun and interesting projects are inspired by our clients. This custom forged bronze tree topper Kyle made was a great way to end the year on just such a project!

Kyle created sheet metal for this project by forging down a block of bronze to 1/16" thick. He gave the bronze some hammer texture for added depth. Here he's laying out the frustum, or a cone without it's tip, that he'll use for the base of the tree topper.

After laying out the frustum, he created a paper template to confirm his calculations of the measurements of the base.

This is the material for the base cut out prior to forging it into the frustum shape.

Here's the completed forged bronze tree topper with Kyle's full-size design.

Many thanks to all our friends for a wonderful year, and happy holidays! See you in 2015!
