James
Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
United Kingdom
I'm James, a Brighton based blacksmith. I have worked on several pieces in the past I am immensely pleased with but did not have the opportunity to photograph them so now I'm collecting all my images and putting a few up here.
I'm always happy to get feedback on my work so do comment if you wish!
Thanks for looking.
Interests
As a child growing up I was forever taking things apart and (sometimes) putting them back together which through some curious paths has lead me to become a qualified blacksmith, it was only after I had started that I found out that my grandad was a blacksmith also though shamefully he passed while I was too young to understand anything like that. I love to use my creative and problem solving abilities in work pieces which makes many work pieces have a unique flare to them, if sometimes subtle.
A goal of mine is to have work pieces all over the world one day. Already having a couple in Africa; several in wales and one that travels in a boat all over warm waters I think that one is well on its way! 

I like to add personality to a piece by getting to know the person or people it's for. An example of this is a "pig burner" I made for someone whilst working at Stanmer Park Forge, he thought the name of "pig burner" was great so we made it look like an actual pic with ears; a snout and tail. Something that stuck out about his personality was he liked his music, punk rock music to be precise. I gave the pig some studs and earrings  with a few other customization's. It totally changed the end piece from a log burning stove into a punk rock pig burner.

Business Card Holder
This is a copper and steel business card holder I made, riveted together and hand formed.
It fits about 35 standard business cards up to a max width of 95mm.
Visit my Etsy shop or website if you need to liven up your business cards!
