Big jobs up high

I have been commissioned to make a Juliet and 12 meters worth of railings for a balcony roof. This is definitely the biggest job I've ever undertaken so far but I know I can do. The customer has asked for a hammered look with a basket design feature in the middle which really stands out as you can see from the photo.

 This is what the Juliet looks like at the moment, it's almost finished and then ready to be painted. After that I can get started on the on the huge amount of railing I have to complete. I'll be taking photos and updating on the blog as I go along.

Snakes everywhere!

One small product that seems to be very popular at the moment is the forged snakes I make. Great as a little gift or as some customers have been doing is using them as a door stop, which works just as well. I find that they make great little demonstration pieces at shows as even the kids can get excited when they recognize the snakes form. Here are just a small range of snakes that I have made over the past few days and you can purchase them at any of market stalls or send me a message if you'd love one sooner :)

Flower power

I wanted to show you all my new small candle holders, Flower shaped with leaved feet. I think they look pretty sweet and come in a pair. £45 for the pair, I'll be putting these on etsy and make to order too.

On the Saturday I was round the corner from my home in St Georges park at Redfest where I had a stall. The weather did have a wet patches but it held out pretty well. On the day I held a raffle for a rose and stand which is always popular product. I was very happy to hand it over to the winner and and new owner.

I'm at Red fest today and the sun is out on full force now. For those who picked up a business card please take a look at my website.

Busy month

I must admit I'm a very bad Blogger as I leave it months at a time before up dating. I started going back to work at the beginning of July so I've had a a very solid month of playing catch up with all the commissions and market stalls!! I got back in to the swing of things pretty quickly which helped and started back on the commissions with some easier products like the roses and hearts.

Once I got back into it fully there was no stopping me! I also got asked if I would like to come and preform demonstrations and a steam and vintage working show in Highbridge which of course I agreed too. I started buying in more equipment like a mini anvil and a portable forge. I also made a stand for a leg vice that I was given from a friend in France.  

On the 26th of July I was in Highbridge with all my main kit in hand and the weather being the hottest ever!!! and I'm stood out in it with my forge going. It was very thirsty work but so much fun. it was such a positive vibe form every one and they all enjoyed watching me work. I made paper knives, large door handles and little snakes (which proved popular with the kids). All in all it was a fantastic weekend.
