These days metal is everywhere we look. From cars to kitchen utensils and from belt buckles to scaffolding, we are surrounded by shaped and moulded metal, and it is essential to everyday life. With so much metal about, we can somehow forget how important it is. Metal has always held a special place in human civilization, and ironwork has been integral to technological advancement.
Although many modern, industrial processes have pushed the envelope of what is possible with metal, there is something deeply beautiful about hand forged ironwork. Chippenham or elsewhere in the country, hand forged ironwork that has been made by an artist blacksmith using traditional methods has a look and a style that no mechanical tool or mass-production process can ever replicate or replace. For generations, hand forged ironwork has been the only way of making metal tools and implements, and the secret arts of the blacksmith have been jealously guarded by those who have mastered them.
