For quite sometime now, Nigel has wanted to explore hot forging or ‘blacksmithing’ as it is better known. He had an idea to combine his ‘cold forging’ skills with some blacksmithing forming methods to create a new element to his designs.
He attended a workshop a couple of months ago and here is one of the resulting pieces, a stunning trident candlestick holder. Initially, a suggestion by a close family friend, this piece evolved during Nigel’s training sessions into this beautiful candlestick which now lives with the friend who suggested it would be a good challenge for Nigel.
Thank you Helen, we really hope you enjoy your candlestick, it was definitely designed and made with you in mind.
