After living and working in the Uk for 15 years we moved home to Ireland in 2020, settling in the Gaeltacht ( Irish speaking) region of North West Donegal. The landscape in which we live and work is inspirational. The wild Atlantic on one side and glacial shaped lakes and mountains on the other, and all around, traces of a distant and ancient past still visible, just beneath the surface .
20 years ago we discovered the thrill of making steel move, through the application of heat and the interaction of hammers, human hands and eye. Evolving that experience over time, we now incorporate hot glass, gilding metals and patination into our work and have build up a finely tuned range of indoor and outdoor forged steel designs. We are privileged in where we live and work and in the love we have for what we do, namely, to design, to explore combining materials and to create objects of uniqueness and beauty. Feel free to explore our site. “Who we are is what we make”, but it also ,where we live and what we love in our day to day.
The people behind the brand. It can be a bit of a cliche but from experience we know that a brand/ business/product is only as good as the people behind it. There the nuts and bolts, the getting your hands dirty, the driving through out the night to do a trade show kind of people, that have your back, as you have there’s. Over the years through chance, good fortune (on both sides) and a fine tuned perception; we have created a great team around Us. Matt, trained as a potter and now works in Glass, Paul, engine of the workshop, wizard tool maker and a zen master at the art forming jigs. John, doer of all thing involved in running a Craft business and Lisa the consistent voice and tone behind the multitude of emails and phone calls. Plus not to forget the workshop deity, who keeps an eye over us and has top position at the Christmas meal table. (seriously she does)
