have been blacksmithing for over 15 years, having learnt while working
with other blacksmiths in London and Kent. At first I produced
traditional forgework, gates, railings, weathervanes and architectural
metalwork, which I still produce at Mill Forge near Nantwich in
Cheshire, UK though my designs have become more sculptural and use new
as well as traditional methods.
making sculpture following a trip to Italy to visit a group of artists
and sculptors. During my studies in London I attended the Slade School
of Art, I trained in life drawing. This influenced my metalwork
inspiring me to create unique sculptures, going against the trend of the
time for abstract sculpture. I have always preferred to make figurative
work. Though not usually literal in subject, my pieces often echo
classical sculpture with a modern, sometimes humourous flavour.
ironwork lends itself well to sculpture as it can be worked using a
variety of techniques including hot forgework and welding. I have
developed new techniques using a power hammer to mould steel plate which
is then cut to shape, re-welded and re-worked. I also works in bronze,
wood, copper and other media, always preferring to be hands on rather
than contracting out any of the making process.Please contact David to discuss design and pricing 01270 522277 - email@example.com
David also runs www.ironanniversary.co.uk a site dedicated to gifts for 6th wedding anniversaries, hand made in the blacksmiths forgeI
regularly work with garden designers to create spectacular features
that can be integrated into the setting. I can provide detailed sketches
and scale drawings for clients and together with a team of installers I
can assist in siting and installing work.
work in gardens is often a cross between sculptural and practical.
Though there are often areas of a garden design that lend themselves to
pure sculpture I believe that decorative handrails, arches, gates and
trellises can also be sculptural.
