Gregg has spent years developing the techniques and custom tools that allow him to hand forge copper - producing museum quality candlesticks.
The desired forms and textures are achieved only after going over the surface numerous times with high heat torches and hammers of different shapes and sizes.
Gregg has developed many of his own tools and techniques - inspired mainly by the wrought iron and jewelry traditions.
All pieces hand forged in Greg's studio, engraved on the underside of the base with the title of the design - as well as stamped with the Hessel Studios stamp.
Bespoke Global recommends using beeswax tapers for their slightly sticky surface that works well with the candleholder's tapered openings.
Gregg lives and works in San Rafael, California USA.
