Rowsaan make handcrafted everyday objects.
"We love to use objects made with integrity, that are well considered and beautifully crafted.
Our making process is a combination of silversmithing, blacksmithing and jewellery techniques with forging being our primary process. Our work is hand forged using hammers over our anvil and steel stakes - It's a slow, gradual process as the piece begins to emerge as the metal is formed.
The most important reason for forging our work is that it allows us to make simple but complex little objects; we are able to manipulate metal in subtle ways like tapering, thinning / thickening, fanning and dishing that gives our work a high level of detail. Our work naturally leans towards qualities of a wabi-sabi aesthetic and we have found the forging process lends itself to this; each piece varies slightly in form, surfaces are variegated in muted colours and change slightly as objects age and are used daily.
Our objects are nice to hold, touch and study, they are understated and simple and celebrate daily domestic rituals."
