Welcome to the website.
I am a blacksmith and ironworker, based in South Devon, producing carefully crafted functional ironwork to commission.
Since setting up ‘The New Forge’ in 1988 I have fulfilled a large variety of commissions, in many different contexts and categories. This output, which has been both traditional and contemporary, is predominantly forged, with close attention paid to detailing and finish. A selection of this work is illustrated in the ‘Commissions Gallery‘.
Over time this has led to the development of some specific interests and areas of expertise, which I have attempted to summarize in the ‘Services‘ section.
In the ‘About us‘ and the ‘Blog‘ sections of the site there are some articles, case studies and general notes of possible interest, while some products for sale ‘off the peg’ can be found in the ‘Shop’.
