Some recent photos from the workshop, showing the process of cutting welding, forging & painting the component parts of a swinging sign. Hoping to get an ‘insitu’ photo of this one over the next few weeks…
Candle holders made from reclaimed forks! I’ve made them in our forge, heating the prongs and twisting them around. As the metal is so thin it’s very easy to turn them into a sparkler by accident! As they are made by hand, each one is slightly different. The candle dish is TIG welded onto the fork, and the beeswax finish is applied while the piece is still hot. These can be purchased on the following link: https://www.blackfoxmetalcraft.co.uk/forge/fork-candle-holders.html
Here’s the Bespoke Flower Seat we made a couple of months ago for some local florists (see post on 16th June). Here they are sat on it, fully decorated. Looks amazing, we’re really impressed with what they’ve done with it – I think it looks very natural, and though we were very proud of the frame we made, you can’t tell it’s there at all!
We’ve had some fantastic customer photos in this year, and this one is up there with the best! Shown here at home in Illinois, our first swinging sign in America so great to have a photo of it. The font used is completely custom – it is based on an existing style but I’ve altered a few bits at the request of the customer.
