"Tabard Menorah"

Metal Menorah

this item has not yet been reviewed  
The Tabard Menorah (chanukiah) is a departure from the artists' other menorah designs. It is constructed from three pieces of brass, colored with sculptural patinas and hand-riveted together, to allow for the inclusion of three different patinas in once piece, more like their wallpieces.

This strikingly modern design will be made only in limited editions. Each piece is signed and numbered. This offering is from the first edition, of twenty, called the 'Saddle' style, with broad curves defining the base and tabard, and a round hole in the tabard to distinguish the shamash.The tabard menorah accepts standard, 3/8-inch (1cm) menorah candles. Of the twenty menorahs to be made in this edition, up to five will be offered through The Artful Home in this color combination of black base, silver-gray bar, and brown tabard, with brass rivets.
Dimensions: 2.25in H x 11.5in L x 1.75in D

About this Artist

David M Bowman and Reed C Bowman

"My sense of form and composition comes from close and long study of natural forms, architecture from all periods, the compositions of the masters of painting, and the work of other contemporary and ancient craftspeople."

David M. Bowman Studio consists of two people: David Mills Bowman and his son, Reed Christopher Bowman. David and Reed craft most pieces together. They construct all pieces by hand, with hand tools and simple machines. No part of the production is ever hired out, nor does the studio take in work to produce or patina parts for other artists' designs. Wallpieces are one of a kind.

All of their work is produced from brass sheet and rod, formed into shape, and brazed together using an oxyacetylene welding torch. David and Reed mix patina chemicals from scratch and apply them by hand.

David began working in metal in 1971, near the time Reed was born; he first made silver jewelry, and later moved on to brass belt buckles, then to larger pieces in patinated brass. Over the years, David has worked alone or with different assistants, but he has worked exclusively with Reed since the mid-1990s.

"My work with wallpieces reflects my interest in achieving balance in asymmetrical forms. I enjoy the constraints of working with our simple tools and limited palette of patinas."
