The Seahorse Door Knocker is sand-cast in solid brass. Brass and bronze are copper-based alloys. The yellow brass alloy used in many of Michael's designs contains 70% copper and produces a warm, traditional brass look. Red bronze contains almost 85% copper. This additional copper content gives the bronze alloy its rich, reddish undertone. The mirrored finish of polished brass and polished bronze is achieved through varying degrees of sanding and buffing. Michael uses these techniques to highlight or accent the raised areas on a piece.The Seahorse Door Knocker is part of Michael Healy's Unique Door Knockers collection. Michael is extremely fond of the ocean and its creatures. While scuba diving off the coast of Florida, he observed the endangered seahorse in its natural habitat. When back on land, Michael sketched an image of this Seahorse Door Knocker to remind him of this elusive sea creature.
