MASTER BLACKSMITH 

With the aid of the work and forging of a blacksmith, metal structures are able to be brought to life in their own way. Even the smallest exquisite detail, when used with caution, gives each work the master blacksmith’s stamp of handiwork and high quality.

I design and prepare forging works for constructions and interior decoration. Gates, railings, fireplace accessories, weathercocks, sculptures. The materials that I use are steel, stainless steel, copper, brass and bronze. I also make restorations and repairs to old metal artefacts.
