Lee Brennan Design
Lee Brennan Design's passion for timeless articles, worn and aged in ways only the combination of nature and time can produce is the inspiration behind this collection. Giving each piece it's own soul through absolute individuality and authenticity. It is their desire to create pieces which connect in the way in the haunting historic way that would be felt when uncovering ancient treasure. Beaten, scorched and melted, the process in which the collection is forged is primitive and honest, as if untouched by technology or the modern world.
Their progressive collections of jewellery are as with all our designs focused around a reductive process, to nurture the unrefined beauty of the materials to the surface. Inspired by hand beaten artifacts, and the minimal (wabi) philosophy that deeply connects with emotions experienced in the nobility of poor, humble, hand forged objects.
This affection for the unpretentious is heightened by their love for imperfections, along with an attachment to the qualities evident in unfinished art or sculpture.
This particular collection is designed around the material. As in all our work, the material is the base and the soul of every piece. The Midnight Collection consists of Stainless Steel, Silver and Bronze.
The metals are often left very raw and blackened in their natural state out of the forge. Some pieces in complete contrast are polished to a high shine which brings out the depth and rich darkness of the material. It is this dark play on shadows and deep shine, which inspired the collection’s name - Midnight.
