Plate made from forged iron by Peat Oberon
  Plate  
 
"I made this plate from a 300mm disc cut from 6mm mild steel which was dished on a flypress using special tools. It was then forged over the edge of an anvil using the ball peen (rounded end) of the hammer for the dish and the flat face for the rim. Special curved chisels were used to cut the circular grooves around the rim."
