With eleven years of mechanical engineering experience including a four year apprenticeship and a few years of travelling the world, I began to realise blacksmithing was going to be my next destination. Blacksmithing to me is a perfect combination of engineering and art. Having the opportunity to be creative and bring beauty to a practical, everyday object is wonderful.
Steel is an amazing material, so versatile, and has the potential to last forever providing it’s given the required attention. Every hook and handle are totally unique and I never try to make two the same. That, I think, is the beauty of my work.
