This ornamental door knocker features hand-forged natural forms, stylized to convey a sense of refined simplicity and attenuation with Mother Earth.
Each leaf is forged individually by hand, then combined through an ancient process called forge-welding, in which the component parts are heated to near-melting in a coal fire and then hammered to fuse them into one cluster.
That cluster of leaves is then forge-welded to the root vegetable that functions as the "hammer" of the knocker.
Installation is easy with two included screws, which are effectively hidden by the knocker after installation is complete for a clean presentation.
