Description

The 200 Ton Ashtray series are formed from 2 inch steel plate using a blacksmith’s forge and a one-of-a-kind vintage 200 ton hydraulic press from 1956. Making these is hot, heavy, old school metalworking that produces a wonderfully textured, organic result. The distinctive pattern from the torch used to cut the blanks, the tool marks, and the fire-scale skin that the 1900 degree forge leaves on the steel are all retained in the finished product like marks from a potter’s fingers.

These items are available in a 6” Ring and a 5” Disc format, and weigh 7 and 11 pounds

6” Ring: This ashtray features torch patterning on both sides of the ring and a fully welded ¼” bottom. Weight is 7 pounds. Retail price is $275.

5” Disc: This ashtray is the real heavyweight. Formed from the center cut ofthe Ring format, these weigh 11 pounds. One monolithic block of steel, modeled like clay. The pie-shaped slot is caused by the starter hole for the cutting torch opening up under the intense force of the press. Retail price is $325.
