I am a maker of all types of Decorative, Functional & Architectural Wrought Iron Work. I create home and garden furnishings to your own specification using top quality materials. Also will repair existing products i.e. gates, chairs & tables, railings, fire grates etc. Agricultural needs and repairs are also catered for.
HOW IT STARTED
From a young age I was always fascinated by the medieval image of a blacksmith, toiling away at the forge turning out suits of armour and swords.
I then started to notice more recent application of wrought iron work, a lot more identifiable than that of the sword maker, and that applied to houses and every items of gates and furniture.
Around the 50’s and 60’s the forge and anvil was paramount to the blacksmith, but sadly now with modern production these skills have all but died a death.
At the age of 21 I built my first set of gates (not a small project by any means these were estate proportions) under the watchful eye of my father, a retired engineer.
From then on I was hooked and began reading up on the subject, however material on the subject was very rare, the breakthrough came when I was given a set of old books with step by step photos, from this I built the forge and began following the directions.
The service I offer is from very small items like a candle stick to large items, handrails and gates for example.
I have the facilities to produce a fully hand forged job, or a more modern work practice, but which ever way the jobs are produced, they have the look and feel of the high quality traditional work from days gone by.
