It has taken us a long while to settle on a pot rack that we really do like, we have been considering them for absolutely years, but never committed to a design. Since our blacksmith Alun joined us, we have really admired the strength and rustic beauty of forged metal and how he can turn and shape it into the simplest and most functional of products. So we knew the time had come to finally offer our customers a notoriously difficult product to source.
A simple oval curved shape, that is in fact created by Alun as he turns hot metal around an old mill wheel from here at Cotes, a simple form that is also very apt for a deVOL product made here at Cotes Mill. The design is about as simple as can be, because for us, it needs to hang pots and pans, be sturdy and practical and not steal the limelight. Traditional blackened steel, heated and dipped in beeswax with hand-forged hooks of varying lengths, it will hold up the heaviest of pans if located on a sturdy structural beam or ceiling joist.
Often pot hangers are twiddly or very contemporary, we like something a little less obvious as we love to see copper pans, herbs and the odd piece of linen taking centre stage.
Handmade to order, these pot racks are really special and we know what character they will add to a kitchen when hanging over a big range cooker or a big prep table.
