The majority of my work has been for private clients but I have made a number of pieces for public use. Working from initial measurements and the client’s brief, I design, manufacture and fit the piece. My work has included gates, railings, grills, one-off sculptural pieces, specialist tools, fireside, garden and door furniture, wood and milti-fuel burning stoves, and the restoration and repair of existing iron work.
In my craft I aim wherever possible to use traditional blacksmithing techniques which impart to the work a quality not matched by factory based fabrication methods and also help to keep the craft of blacksmithing alive.
I have run workshops in blacksmithing where I taught basic techniques of forge work to age groups ranging from 12-60 years old.
My work has been exhibited at several exhibition spaces and craft fairs around the country.
