Custom Sand Dollar Draw Pull

Custom Sand Dollar Draw Pull

The sand dollar draw pull was first designed for a decorator with a project on Cape Cod.  The kitchen of a home under renovation was taking on more aquatic motifs in its design.  Our studio designed and forged all the custom  draw pulls and cabinet door handles with a sand dollar motif.  As all the pieces are hand made, we took advantage of the opportunity to vary the design slightly from piece to piece as they would occur in nature.

The back plate starts out as a round disk cut from 1/8th” iron sheet metal.  Holes are drilled in a symmetrical pattern.  The piece is then heated and forged to the finished size, tapering down to the edge. In so doing, the holes distort into the tear drop shape you see in this sample.  Radial lines are then chiseled to complete the design.  This back plate can be used with any style of ring or knob that the customer desires.
