Bespoke Forgings

Blacksmiths forgings

Blacksmiths Tom Leader and Kyle Roberts working the traditional coal forge at Allerford Forge, the home of West Country Blacksmiths. Tom Leader is forging a piece of hot steel using one of the forge anvils and a blacksmith’s hammer.

Bespoke forgings undertaken in all types of metal by West Country Blacksmiths.

West Country Blacksmiths are pleased to offer a bespoke forgings service, whereby they will forge individual items of metalwork or metal components for a larger project, either to a bespoke design or to templates submitted.

We find this service particularly useful to other tradesmen, artists and designers who wish to incorporate metalwork in their own projects.

We offer to undertake bespoke forging using almost all forgeable metals, including wrought iron, bronze, brass, mild steel, stainless steel and Cor-ten steel.

We have forged all kinds of highly detailed and decorative items, including brass rings for an art sculpture, frames for fireside spark guards, hooks for an interior-design project and most recently panels for bespoke furniture. The panels were designed to replicate the originals, which are housed at the V&A Museum in London.

The original panels are all in cast brass, and reproducing these from forged steel was truly a challenging project for our smiths, who forged the stunning metalwork pictured below.

If you require bespoke forgings for your project, no matter how big or small it may be, please Contact Us. Our team of talented smiths will be delighted to offer their advice and skill on all aspects of metalwork.

Please see the slideshow below of the recent decorative panels project, showing a real range of bespoke forgings in different styles.
