A new hanging basket bracket design we’ve created recently. After uploading our Manchester Bee bracket onto the website and the various social media channels, it’s been really popular, especially locally to our workshop in Manchester, unsuprisingly. We had an enquiry from a customer who had seen this, but with no ties to Manchester themselves, wondered if we could create a laser cut hanging basket bracket design featuring a Bumble Bee. I played about with several versions of this design, but the customer chose the one with our trademark filigree that I like to doodle on many of our designs. I think the laser cut Bumble Bee has worked great as a silhouette!
Introducing our new Manchester Bee hanging basket bracket! The worker Bee symbol has been an emblem of Manchester since the industrial revolution, denoting Mancunians’ work ethic, the sense of unity in the city and its hive of activity. We’ve used it here surrounded by a honeycomb design; a truly unique piece and a wonderful addition to any proud Mancunian’s garden! Being a few miles North of the city centre on the edge of the Rochdale canal, we’ve mounted this hand forged hanging basket bracket on our workshop. The Bee design itself is laser cut from chunky 3mm steel, and the horizontal arm is forged by hand from 10mm square bar. As always it’s plated and powdercoated, so it’s sturdy and built to last.
