I started my blacksmithing career in 2004, forging wood chisels for a London toolmaker, and I now make mostly kitchen knives, but my metalworking career has taken me in various other directions weird and wonderful. I have found work making piano pedal springs, bell clappers and copper cauldrons, Martian armour for a film and swords for the BBC, art handling equipment (for the National Gallery), as well as ironwork conservation and restoration projects in various prominent locations (Hampton Court, Kensington Palace, Canterbury Cathedral).
