About Us

Andy studied blacksmithing and creative ironwork at Plumpton College in Lewes, East Sussex and throughout his three years at college, he found a passion of contemporary ironwork from the design through to the production of bespoke pieces. This passion has grown and evolved throughout his time with other established blacksmiths on a number of different projects such as gates, balconies, rails and fire guards.

Mikey has also studied blacksmithing and creative ironwork at Plumpton College which built his skills and abilities in blacksmithing. Throughout the three years he attended, he found a passion for traditional ironwork by learning traditional techniques that have been used for centuries. These skills and passions have been enhanced and refined with the help of skilled blacksmiths he has worked for. Combining traditional and organic designs with contemporary methods, Mikey is able to produce an array of products which are truly unique and stunning.
