The Hartcliff Collection
One of Nigel and Elizabeth’s aims when they set up Nigel Tyas Ironwork in the year 2000 was to create a beautiful and elegant chandelier which wasn't fussy, glitzy or overly ornate. There is a place for such products of course, but as a blacksmith working with wrought iron, Nigel wanted to fashion his material to make something both strong and graceful. The result is the Hartcliff with its clean, fluid and perfectly-balanced lines.
The Hartcliff’s shape and design were inspired by the vaulted roof in the cloisters of Canterbury Cathedral – Nigel looked up and felt he could develop the chandelier he was looking for by reflecting its arched proportions in reverse!
The Hartcliff range is named after a hillside near to the Nigel Tyas forge. There’s rumours that an Iron Age forge lies beneath it, but this requires further investigation.
