Sculptural Ironwork and Public Art


Our range of heavy-duty metalworking tools as well as the customary blacksmiths’ tools, our network of specialist suppliers, our links with other artist makers, our general engineering know-how, our collaborative design philosophy, our ability to ‘think big’, our readiness to work directly with community groups, and our ability to work to a clear brief, to a tight budget and a fixed deadline.

This unique mix of complementary strengths leaves the team of blacksmiths at Anwick Forge ideally qualified to undertake complex architectural projects in consultation with public and not-for-profit organisations.

Whether it is a tired town centre, an anonymous shopping mall, or an unloved village green, the team at Anwick Forge will be delighted to work with you and your community to design and create a single piece (or an ensemble) of purely decorative or functional hot forged ironwork to help reinforce a sense of place.

Please contact us if you would like us to undertake design workshops with community representatives, to make presentations of the final design concept, and also to hold demonstrations at Anwick Forge’s distinctive and evocative premises so that community members can see their ironwork being forged.

You can find examples of some recent public art projects in our Gallery.
