The Beehive is a hand-forged lamp using both traditional blacksmithing and modern metal forming techniques. The design is a result of Anthony Dickens’ continued exploration in creating contemporary forged metal products with Richard at Made by the Forge.
Each light of the Beehive Three Line is based on the classic layered beehive shape, and given some individual character by Richard’s craftsmanship.
Finished with a traditional, locally sourced, natural beeswax straight from the hive.
“Perfect for the breakfast bar at home or a table for four in a restaurant,”
Anthony Dickens, Designer

"The Beehive light series came to life by exploring how far we could push and deform metal during the forging process. Using an industrial power hammer, we flattened an 8mm steel bar down to only 1mm thick. The process transformed a perfectly straight, machine made metal bar into something unpredictable, textural and handmade. This became the material inspiration behind Beehive, a simple form that acknowledges the Suffolk bees who provide their beeswax to seal every one of our lights."
