Spin360° Bespoke handmade/hand spun lighting & decorative items from bespoke one off commissions to multiple batch orders. Hand spinning metal is an extremely old trade which most people have never heard of yet a lot of things in and around their homes and business are hand spun, or at least used to be before mass production of cheap pressed or machine made goods took over the world. Hand spinning takes years to master and is fascinating to watch if never seen before. I have been a precision metal spinner for over 16 years, hand spinning for the aerospace and nuclear industries working to extremely tight tolerances (as tight as 0.1mm) as well as all kinds of commercial spinning and one off pieces in all variations of standard and exotic metals. My love of metal spinning has lead me to the idea of making decorative and statement pieces of lighting, flower pots,candle holders,bowls etc... from my small workshop in Portsmouth Hampshire. I believe people are starting to look for quality and craftsmanship again rather than throw away mass produced goods. Everything I sell is handmade to order,British made with passion and a high level of workmanship which I pride myself on. All the tools I use to spin metal are hand made by myself too. from the mandrels to the tools i use to manipulate the metal. As well as my own work I also take commissions and multiple batch orders of parts or components.
