Artful Affordable

by

Who knew brass could lose its yesteryear stodginess and become today’s hot metal?  By combining the British industrial revolution’s materials (cast iron, enamel, copper, brass, marble, and solid wood) with today’s industrial processes, Tom Dixon has been able to breathe new energy into grandma’s candlesticks …

Case in point:  ETCH CANDLE HOLDER, $55

Using the technology employed to cut circuit boards, detailed designs are photo-etched onto brass sheets.  Then, all unexposed areas are dissolved with acid, leaving the intricate patterns cut into metal.  Flat-packed for you to assemble and your handiwork is part of the process.  Hardware is included so that you can join multiple holders together for your own sculptural table scape.

The warm glow is all you:  ETCH PENDANT, $285

Another great idea from Tom Dixon … whether to spiff up your own digs in advance of holiday visitors or to give to that stylish, creative person on your list … is the Magically Oversized Knob!

Starting at $55 for the 4″ diameter, these thick chunks of colored glass mount to your wall so that you can hang your coat or dog leash in the mud room when you come in the back door.  Or, you can mix color and size (large is 10″ round) to create art on your wall wherever you hang your hat!

The gift department at SR Hughes is bigger than ever!  You’ll find these and more innovative ideas for giving only at SR Hughes.  We invite you to support local Oklahoma businesses wherever you buy this season:
