Custom-made Bespoke Metalwork

Made in Wales

My Forge is located in Llanbrynmair Mid Wales. My Artistic Blacksmithing Business began in 2003. As my reputation has grown, so has the demand for unusual and individual pieces of work.

I graduated with a BA Hons in Fine Art Sculpture from Bath Spa University and then pursed a course in Blacksmithing at Hereford College. After various work placements and apprenticeships I set up Gothic Blacksmiths in 2003.

Most commissions are created from my own design, unless I have a specific design from my clients. I have developed and learnt a wide range of metal and forging techniques, and working as a Blacksmith has given me great insight, which I utilise as a sculptor.

I also teach Artistic Blacksmithing to a wide age range and at lots of different locations, from schools to colleges and at festivals, community events, Home educated classes and excluded teenager groups.

I have begun teaching the Residential Artistic Blacksmithing Courses at Mid Wales Art Centre. I have six forges set up and teach a two day course for beginners.

I have been working for the Welsh Assembly Government as an Entrepreneur Role Model in Schools, colleges and universities since 2005.
