John Churchill Blacksmith

John Churchill Blacksmith is a small firm of blacksmiths and ironworkers, producing homewares and undertaking hand-forged ironwork commissions. John Churchill’s interest in iron started in 1978 when he enrolled as an apprentice welder in Clermont-Ferrand, France after being deeply inspired by the architectural heritage & surviving vernacular ironwork there. John went on to work as a welder in Sudan, fascinated by the techniques of traditional African metalsmiths, before setting up his UK business in 1988.

Maker's Quote

As blacksmith I make use primarily of forging processes and techniques. In the production of more traditional pieces this is usually to the exclusion of modern techniques such as electric arc welding – as my intention is to provide the genuine article and not a production line facsimile.
