I am an Artist Blacksmith, and started my business in 2003.
I mostly design and create all my own work, bespoke products such as candlesticks and pokers to staircases and gates, as well as various sculpture’s which I exhibit around Wales. I also teach Artistic Blacksmithing at events, schools, festivals and also run private lessons.
"Overcoming fears and having constant challenges are parts of running a business, but if you are passionate and determined you will achieve your goals."

I began my education in Bath with a degree in Fine Art Sculpture then later studying Blacksmithing at Hereford College.
With an apprenticeship with Stokes of England, grant funding and much advice I began my business.
