Dragonfly In Flight Door Knocker Oiled Bronze

This Oiled Bronze Dragonfly Door Knocker was designed by Michael Healy, an accomplished Rhode Island artisan. The oiled bronze finish is attained by successively dipping raw bronze castings into a patina solution and then buffing them to a satin finish. With the repetition of this process Michael creates the rich, dark multi-tone finish of his Oiled Bronze. He enjoyed studying the acrobatic flight of dragonflies while fly fishing in the pond near his cottage. On one August morning, Michael found a large dragonfly perched on the front door. The dragonfly eventually flew away but left behind a wonderful idea for Michael Healy's first door knocker design. It has been signed by Michael Healy to confirm it's authenticity.
