Matt von Sturmer and Carmen Sosich are the passion and the driving force behind BlackSand Bronze. After years of designing and making objects, they decided to produce a bronze hardware range that spoke of authenticity, quality and craftsmanship. Working on Waiheke Island in an old boat shed, handles are designed, foundry tools made and bronze castings machined and processed. 

Carmen Sosich has a creative background, working in art galleries, the film industry and interior design. For the last 20 years she has joined forces with Matthew where they have fitted out many homes, and commercial spaces with their own designs.

Matthew von Sturmer began his creative working life as a contemporary jeweller, his objects grew in scale from jewellery to civic street furniture. He now concentrates on the Blacksand Bronze range of hardware, public integrated artworks and salt water fly fishing.

We take design seriously and like that our designs are a result of respecting function and the process of making. We have stripped away processes that aren't necessary or authentic focusing on creating a natural long lasting finish. Our hardware has a tactile authentic feel and sits in an environment like it has been there for years. Being the designer and makers of our work, means working on custom components is possible and jobs can be seen through from beginning to end.

Bronze is an inherently beautiful material, it casts really well, it's recyclable, it's great to machine, it's strong, durable and timeless, and it develops a lovely patina over time. Bronze is the perfect material for door handles because it is Antimicrobial - this means it kills bacteria.
