Deeply inspired by the rich architectural heritage & surviving vernacular ironwork there, John went on to work as a welder in the Sudan, fascinated by the techniques of traditional African Smiths.
Back in the UK, John created his own forge at home, setting up a business in 1988 to forge traditional door & window furniture, as well as diverse ironwork commissions.
