I have been designing and producing ironwork both full time and part time for over two decades. I trained as part of the family business, started by my father, and continued by myself and my brothers. I have been wielding a hammer
almost since I could lift one. I obtained my arts training via Newport Art College, leaving in 1987 with a BA (hons) in fine art in 1987.
There are two strands to my work – traditional and modern. The traditional items are those that you would expect from a time served smith with
knowledge of traditional techniques and an interest in renovation.
The modern items demonstrate that blacksmithing doesn’t have to be
‘ye old worlde’. Contemporary metals and finishes combined with age old
techniques combine to make really funky items that are
as cutting edge as you want.
