Are you familiar with Hubbardton Forge Lighting? We love carrying their products and really admire the way they create their beautiful masterpieces! They are known for metal finishes. Here is a snippet from their website about their process:
"Finishing begins right at the bare surface of the metal. Our steel fixtures undergo a forging process, where distinctive random patterns of texture are created as the steel is heated to high temperatures. After each fixture is built by our artisans, a translucent powder coat paint is applied, highlighting with a darker appearance the texture, scaling, hammering and bending processes of the craftsperson’s work. Our aluminum lighting undergoes techniques which replicate the look of forged steel. Blackening and tumbling processes create random wear patterns and subtle distressing; then each piece is individually hand-rubbed to highlight its unique form. Like our steel lighting, our aluminum fixtures are finished with an environmentally friendly powder coat paint in a choice of six colors. We’ve also developed a brighter finish, Vintage Platinum, which carefully tumbles aluminum to a subtle shine. The fixture is then clear-coated to preserve its beautiful, antique chrome look."
