Our Finishes Explained…
Copper – Our pure copper baths are a work of art. The mirror polish shine, achieved through an extensive and unique seven stage polishing process is protected using a bespoke William Holland coating to ensure they maintain their sumptuous gleam. Available in a soft brushed finish adding an element of gentle understatement, or left un-lacquered to naturally patina and harness the antimicrobial properties of this amazing material, copper is a suitable for finish for virtually any interior style.
Nickel – This mirror shine luxury finish is crafted using a special William Holland plating technique. With a gentle warm undertone, nickel is an opulent choice suitable for traditional or modern interiors requiring iconic design heritage with a contemporary twist. The nickel can also be delicately brushed to create a beautifully soft, muted sheen.
Brass – Truly sumptuous and suitable for contemporary or bold traditional interiors, our pure brass baths are crafted using our unique seven stage polishing process to create a glamorous mirror shine. In order to maintain this luxury finish, we protect the bath with a unique coating so that absolutely no polishing is required. Alternatively we can gently brush the surface to craft a subtle, satin finish, or leave the brass un-coated to develop a rich, natural antique patina over time.
Tin – Using traditional artisan techniques handed down through the generations, tin is hand applied over the hand beaten copper to produce a glorious industrial or rustic-luxe effect. Full of history and narrative you can virtually see our master craftsmen at work through the textured sweep and tones of this minimalist and classic choice.
Patina – Using our years of expertise and unique William Holland processes, with meticulous and patient care we capture the deep rich tones of antique copper in a ‘living’ finish that will naturally deepen and evolve over time. Perfect for understated, industrial-luxe or traditional interiors this style exudes iconic heritage.
Verdigris – The other member of our ‘living finish’ range, this vibrant aqua hue is gently formed through natural environmental oxidation. An organic process that usually takes years to unfold, we capture this finish through a combination of special techniques and modern innovation, to present a stunning organic work of art deeply rooted within nature.
Enamel – For that white clean finish we use a hard-wearing epoxy enamel which is sprayed onto the surface of the copper, this gives a high shine finish that also keeps to the hand made nature of the bath and still gives the heat retaining benefits of the copper, the epoxy enamel also allows the copper to flex
RAL – If this wasn’t enough, we can also combine any of the above finishes with an interior or exterior enamel from the full RAL colour spectrum, as Oscar Wilde said “colour can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways”…so let yours sing!
