Meet The Grain Family

What was meant as a warning from our fabricator in L.A. – that occasionally a trace of wood grain from the tool used in metal spinning could be seen in finished parts – became the focal point of our Grain Family. We invented a process to celebrate this tooling mark. Working with a pattern maker, we create custom molds from maple boards, and sandblast them to raise the wood grain. They're then spun on a lathe at the same speed as a flat sheet of aluminum, which forms around the mold to create a metal shade. After each run of 25 parts the mold is sandblasted again, exposing fresh grain and slowly eroding the wood tool. 

A versatile size and typology. The aluminum shade of our Grain Pendant is formed over a wooden mold that has been sandblasted to raise the wood grain. Once anodized and painted, the Grain Pendant rests on a glowing flared glass socket. We impress that natural texture on to the final spun metal part.
