About / News


Unique, individually designed and hand forged ironwork, personally created for you by Master Blacksmith and Award Winning Designer, David Tucker.  I graduated from the first degree course in creative blacksmithing in 1984 and have been creating architectural, sculptural, domestic and garden ironwork ever since.  I take my inspiration from the environment into which the piece will be introduced; nature, history and architectural detail link the garden or building to this new addition and give 'ownership' to it.


My work has been exhibited extensively at home and abroad, including the National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto, Japan and at 'Jugend Gestaltet' in Germany, where I awarded the annual prize.  I am a Fellow and Bronze and Silver medal holder of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths for 'work of a consistently high standard'.


Awarded the 2017 Tonypandy Cup


I am delighted that The Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths have awarded my ' Kirk Ireton Hoard Sculptural Display Case' the 2017 Tonypandy Cup.  Given in memory of Lord Tonypandy, Former Speaker of the House of Commons, the Cup may be awarded annually for a piece which is considered to be an outstanding example of the skill of the blacksmith and is considered to be the most prestigious award given by the Company.
