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 an Associate of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths and a member of the British Artist Blacksmith Association and 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, and a customer's design input is always most welcome. So, if you have an idea or design you would like to develop into forged metal, please do not hesitate to contact me for an informal chat.
