Unique Doorbells by Michael Healy:
Michael Healy is an accomplished Rhode Island designer with years of
metalworking experience and an eye for creativity. All of Michael Healy Doorbells are hand crafted.
Designer wanted to create Doorbells with the sculptured beauty of his Door
Knocker line for those people who wanted to compliment their existing Michael
Healy Door Knocker or who just wanted to welcome their guests in style.
These door bells were designed to provide an exquisite alternative to a lone
button or a decorative back plate. Each unique
Doorbell starts with a sketch which is then sculptured into a three dimensional
model. An impression of the model is made in fine sand into which 2300° metal is
poured. Each model can be used only once making each door knocker truly unique.
After the metal cools, the sand is broken away and the raw casting emerges.
Through multiple phases of grinding and polishing, accents and highlights are
added to each Doorbell. Each Doorbell receives a baked polyurethane
finish similar to the clear coat finish on your car. Michael's signature
confirms its authenticity and quality craftsmanship.
