JW Blacksmiths is in the Beautiful village of Lacock in rural Wiltshire. Here at JW Blacksmiths forge I strive to keep the true tradition of the Blacksmiths craft alive. Using tool designs and techniques that have been handed down through the centuries from Blacksmith to Blacksmith. My range of high quality hand-forged wrought iron products includes kitchen pan racks, railings, tools, knives, garden furniture, weather vanes, rose arches, gates, benches, boot scrapers, curtain poles, fire dogs, candlesticks, pokers, toasting forks, hooks, handles and many more bespoke items. One forging I have always had a great demand for is my forged hooks. I have always enjoyed making hooks because they are a good exercise in hand forging. Another design highlight, for me, is that the hooks are an excellent example of how fire and forging can transform one simple piece of iron into a beautiful functional piece of art.
"There is nothing to match the experience of fire and forge work using age-old techniques, at the same time pushing the very limits of how iron can change form. This is the great challenge today. I am also particularly interested in the contrast between severe and geometric man made patterns and soft, flowing organic shapes."
