Chandelier for Walnut Hollow Farm, by Jordan Goodwin
Although the name is recent, the Walnut Hollow Farm property has been a working farm for 150-200 years, and although none of the really old buildings survive, the evidence of decade upon decade of farming was found during current construction and cleanup. Scrap metal was found sticking out of the earth, washed out in the creek, and piled in the woods. This custom chandelier was created using only reclaimed metal from the farm- wrought-iron wagon wheel rims & hub bands, assorted hand-forged harness and implement chains, pieces of rods and bolts- even the rivets used to fasten the scrolls to the fire-welded wagon-tire frame were forged by hand from Walnut Hollow steel.
