Hello everyone and welcome to Andrew Findlay's blog!
We are based at The Old Forge, Eastnor, Ledbury, Herefordshire HR81RD. Telephone is 01531 634999
Here you will be able to read about what's happening at Eastnor Forge including events such as demonstrations and open days, what we make, how it's done and importantly what inspires us. But first a bit of background.
I started work as a self employed Artist Blacksmith in 1985, working from a tin shed with very little equipment. As my skill level grew I started getting enquiries from interior designers based locally who wanted something different for their projects. Eventually as word spread about my work I started getting enquiries from top design firms in London such as Sedley Place Ltd, Fox Linton Associates, Sybil Colefax and John Fowler amongst others, and ended up making both interior and exterior work for their high profile clients in the Music, Media and Hospitality industries. My style of work has always been inspired by nature and tends to feature plant forms, both realistic and abstract. See it in detail HERE
I have always made smaller pieces to sell direct to the public, and these include fire irons, bowls, hooks, and a good range of garden planters and small sculptures as well as a very popular garden bench design.
We have also been supplying top floor and fabric company Roger Oates Design with stair rods for their runners for many years.
Please feel free to contact me here with any questions or enquiries
