Ged Kennett produces brass, bronze, and stainless steel finishes. He also creates handmade textures that are applied to the surfaces of the finishes. Below you will find helpful information on the types of finishes and textures.

All Ged's handles made from brass have finishes which allow them to react to their environment. Their color and polish (patina) will change with time and use; this is what we call Living Finishes. Handles that receive heavy use will polish back to their underlying metal, while those that receive little use will generally darken over time. The images below illustrate what a pictured piece of hardware looks like following 6 months of typical use. The used handles are displayed on the left of each pair.
