Smiling Sunface Door Knocker

Michael Healy

The Sun Face Door Knocker is sand-cast in solid Nickel Silver and signed in the mold by artist Michael Healy. Nickel Silver is an alloy that has a warm silver color which is attained by adding nickel to bronze. Michael combines a high polished finish with brushed accents to generate a contemporary look. A stainless steel brush on a high speed lathe is used to create the brushed effects. The mirrored finish of polished nickel silver is achieved through varying degrees of sanding and buffing. > MORE Michael uses these techniques to highlight or accent the raised areas on a piece. This Door Knocker is finished with a protective coating to maintain it's beauty for years to come. Your Brushed Nickel Silver and Polished Chrome Sun Face Door Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan. While traveling in Europe, Michael was impressed by the rich variety of sculpted architectural detail. One such detail he encountered in the Alps was the Sun Face. Michael made a sketch of this happy image which years later became the subject for one of his unique Door Knockers.^ LESS
