I have worked as an Artist Blacksmith for over 20 years creating hand forged ironwork, furniture and sculptures for the home and garden, mostly to commission. I have also exhibited and demonstrated blacksmithing at select craft and heritage events in Shropshire and the West Midlands. I am now retired and no longer taking on new commissions although I do have a few stock items for sale which are priced in the Gallery.

From my forge and studio in the heart of the Shropshire hills I work as an Artist Blacksmith in mild steel, wrought iron, copper and occasionally other metals. I produce hand forged ironwork to the highest quality and uncompromising design and craftsmanship encompassing the great passion I have for my work. Where possible, I draw my inspiration from the huge resources that nature around me in Shropshire has to offer, whether it be traditional or contemporary.

I am a Master Blacksmith and Fellow of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths. I am also a member of the British Artist Blacksmith Association and a former member of the Shropshire Guild of Contemporary Craft.

Browse the gallery to see a broad range of bespoke ironwork, from candle holders, fireside tools, furniture and curtain poles to garden accessories and gates, railings & balustrades. On occasions I collaborate with my wife, Jacqueline, who produces Hand Made Kiln Fired Glass, to create items in both metal and art glass.

Work is mostly to commission, designed and made to specific customer requirements. I am now retired and no longer taking on commissions; please see Contact page for current details.
