Hello and welcome
After several years of working as a metal artist and selling my work in art galleries, I began to realise how much I valued relating with the next caretaker of the work I created. This part of the process was missing..... which is the main reason this website has come about. My work is so much more than a transaction of money for an object of desire.
I put a lot of time and energy into every piece and I am very grateful to have found artistic metal working as a form of expression.
I really enjoy working with other people to create something meaningful.
I use whatever means available to me to form metal of various types - steel, stainless steel and copper. This includes a beautiful old blacksmiths coal forge built in 1873, which I love working with most of all.
My great, great grandfather and his grandfather were both blacksmiths who worked with wrought iron. I am not a blacksmith, rather an artisan who uses many different techniques to shape metal.
Feel free to contact me from wherever you are in the world, if you would like to purchase any piece of art or if you would like to work with me to create something together.
As you will see in the gallery, I make a vast array of products from small, medium and large sculpture through to gates, garden art, industrial furniture, fabrication and restoration, outdoor fires and anything in between. If you have a vision, I am sure we can make it.
I am based in Palmerston North, New Zealand
Thank you, Jason
