Andrew Findlay Artist Blacksmith

A shaper of hot metals for 37 years, Andrew has gained a reputation for the creation of detailed contemporary and innovative forged metalwork, with commissions installed as far afield as Sydney,Tenerife, Dubai and New York. His designs are informed by experiences in countries he has visited, by the changing seasons and by the prolific, beautiful natural environment of rural Herefordshire and the Malvern Hills where he lives with his family.
His forge/studio is located in the historic blacksmiths shop at Eastnor, near Ledbury. He has in the past lectured at Hereford College of Arts and was recently appointed Artist in Residence at the Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee, demonstrating and lecturing to American students and established blacksmiths.
He is well known for a commission that he designed and sculpted for a large villa on the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, involving several tons of decorative screens, grilles, domes, doors and furniture, a project that required three years to complete.
