Custom Listing, Handmade Horse Hair and Iron Stool/Bench by J.M. Szymanski

$12,756per item

About

Horse-hair textile and blackened iron are combined to form a dynamic juxtaposition of elements. Horse-hair, a medium used for centuries. J.M. Szymanski uses traditional metal casting techniques combined with modern machine tools to create a unique iron frame. Our products are fabricated and finished by hand; variations in size, shape, and patina color are a natural result of this process. Tooling marks and surface scratches are part of the character of many finished pieces. All products are sealed with oil and wax, which over time are not impervious to moisture. Our blackened steel pieces installed outside, or in areas exposed to moisture indoors, especially in marine environments, will rust. Condensation from hot and cold drinks will leave rings on blackened steel table tops. Coasters or placemats can protect the finish. Periodic maintenance of blackened steel items may be required.
