I create individually designed contemporary hot forged metal work for Architectural and sculptural use, made using both modern and time honoured techniques. Even after 35 years running Pipers Forge I still feel the excitement of heating steel and being able to manipulate it at will.
The ability to take an immovable material that has a strength far greater than myself and manipulate it at will by using heat and technique still, even after 30 years, excites me. Every time I start a project a new love affair begins with the drama and ups and downs that love can bring. the day I no longer feel this will be the day I decide to lay down my hammer, every day still feels as exciting as the first time I stood facing an anvil.
I work primarily to commission so please get in touch to discuss.
