French House Zinc Lights
Zinc is one of those metals that finds itself often ignored, other than for bar tops. In its raw state it has a rather utlitarian feel to it, but because it does not rust, it lends itself really well to outdoor lanterns. In order to transform its utilitarian feel, we treat it with acid. This ages it, and is though quite difficult to control. Each sheet has an individual feel, even the weather can alter the look. The patina will continue to subtly change for years, which we think only enhances it.
The zinc sheets after being well washed, are cut,beaten, fret worked, soldered and transformed into our unique collection of zinc lanterns.
