Extrusion

We use quite a few extrusions for Hand & Eye products. Our A-Beam and O-Beam lights are both long ceramic extruded pieces, a process that is hard to get right since they are prone to warping during the firing process.

We have great factories that we work with in Italy and Germany who squeeze the clay through the extrusion dies and then fire them in enormous kilns. The excess clay is recycled to use again.

The O-Beam also contains extruded aluminium and the diffuser piece is also made in this way.
