Located where BABA was founded in 1978, Fire and Iron is a major gallery and workshop specialising in forged ironwork and associated metal crafts. Representing more than 100 leading British and international blacksmiths, jewellers and other artists using metal as their chosen medium, Fire and Iron was founded in the early 1980s in response to the global resurgence of interest in forged iron as a creative medium. Owned and run by Lucy Quinnell, who grew up in a blacksmithing family and is the current editor of Artist Blacksmith magazine, Fire and Iron encourages high standards in art metalworking and attracts buyers and commissioners from all over the world. Lucy is married to blacksmith Adam Boydell, and together they design and create public artworks and private commissions. The couple also works in collaboration with other blacksmiths on some Fire and Iron commissions. Lucy won a gold medal for her first RHS garden at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in 2008, and since then she has worked on five more RHS gardens. She lectures on the subject of blacksmithing, and has been featured talking about the subject on Woman’s Hour, the Craft Show, British Lifestyles (Japan), Blue Peter, Britain’s Best Home and Carlton Country.

CB Arts director and founder Chris Brammall is highly regarded as one of the leading metalworkers in the UK. Chris trained as a Blacksmith at Hereford College of Art and Design where he discovered a natural affinity for the art of blacksmithing. In 1994 he established a blacksmiths forge in the Lake District – his unique style coupled with a particular attention to detail saw his work develop from small scale private commissions to large scale public realm pieces and in 2002 he relocated to a purpose built workshop and studio on the edge of the Lake District National Park. As an artist Chris is passionate about delivering work of superior quality which is demonstrated in his portfolio of works that includes bridges, bespoke architectural structures, bespoke sculptures, public realm furniture as well as gates, railings and balustrades for private clients.

Andy Hopper AWCB Sculptural Blacksmith. Award Winning Artist.

Andy designs and creates High End Contemporary Forgework. His speciality is Hot Forging and Forming of Stainless Steel and Bronze. Sculptural and Architectural Design. He makes sculptural pieces and also works on a commission basis. Each design is totally unique. Winner of the highly prestigious TonyPandy Cup 2014 awarded by The Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths for the Stainless Steel and Bronze staircase handrail, ‘The River Flows’. The Globe Theatre Gates in London also won this Award in 1995.

Andy is an International Artist. He was assistant to Supreme Master Blacksmith Michael Roberts FWCB at Memphis Metal Museum, USA in April 2014. The conference was specifically focussed on the forging of non-ferrous materials. He also demonstrated Forging Bronze and gave a lecture on the design and manufacture of ‘The River Flows’.
Process fascinates me. The movement and manipulation of hot metal becomes poetry when approached correctly. I use ultramodern computer-based machines, heavyweight industrial machinery and 5000yr old forging techniques and processes to carry out the tasks efficiently with flow and rhythm. My training is traditionally rooted with a very modern approach to the work.nI put my heart and soul into my work.

My ongoing artistic concern is about the building blocks of creation. The physics of hot metal and of the bursting force of life itself.
All the secrets are there to be deciphered. Consonant and Vowel, Proportion. The language of form. Form creates a sonic resonance. Through extensive calm deep contemplative thought, then sketchbooks, then the drawing board, I decode.
The work then comes to life at the making stage in the forge. The Artworks should breathe the form with energetic life and vigour.

My mission statement is to create Artworks that are tactile and physically beautiful that will stand the test of time.
I am Passionately driven. I specialise in Hot-Forging and Forming processes to create High End Contemporary Design. Predominantly working in Steel, Stainless Steel and Bronze.
I take full advantage of all superior techniques. I implement these with ultramodern computer-based machines, heavyweight industrial machinery and 5000yr old forging techniques and processes to carry out the tasks efficiently with flow and rhythm.
