Oak Leaf Hook
Bring the spirit of the outdoors in… without the mess.
Each hook is handmade using a combination of traditional and modern blacksmithing tools and techniques. We made special tooling just for these hooks to create the veins in the oak leaf as well as a “bark” texture on the hook. While the piece is still hot, it is polished with a brass wire brush to give it a nice contrasting brass and steel finish.
They measure approximately 8" x 4" and protrude from the wall 3".
This product was designed and made by Wicks Forge blacksmith Jonah Lettney-Harvey. See more of his work @maplehillmetalworks.
The Limited Series features new pieces that take a bit of extra time to make or involve new designs and techniques. These pieces can be whimsical, a prototype, or something we’ve been experimenting with for years, but is not yet part of our normal production catalog. To share these with you, we launched this series of limited run pieces. These items will last you forever! But we may not be making them for very long.
Another beautiful piece of work from your shop.
Great and unusual design. The brass highlight is excellent and really pops. I realize that symmetry is important, but oak leaves don't have the lobes opposite each other; white oak have alternate leaves. Peter Good, a recently deceased designer in Chester, CT, did a logo for The University of Connecticut and also made the oak leaves opposite.
Beautiful craftsmanship. Highly recommend!
I bought two of these as a gift. They are beautiful, the attention to detail is incredible. I would definitely buy them again and will look for more opportunities to purchase from Wicks in the future!
