Felicity is based in East London. Her contemporary approach to Blacksmithing has lead her to create both functional domestic pieces to large scale sometimes mechanical sculpture.
Coming from an arts background she fell in love with metal working and studied at Hereford National School of Blacksmithing.
‘I love the fact you can manipulate metals into almost any form keeping their strength. It is such a hands on physical process in which you develop an intimate relationship with the piece you’re working on. I create organic flowing forms in my work which I like to interlace with an element of danger, taking inspiration from insects, plants, symmetry in nature and also more-man made forms such as parts of vehicles and machinery.’
Felicity works in iron, steel and copper creating both functional and sculptural pieces for the home, garden, for narrow boats and festivals.
The design process is highly important to her and she likes to work closely with clients to achieve what they desire, in terms of both aesthetics and function.

My work exploits the fractious nature of stone and the tensile strength of steel.
I create monumental sculptural objects that have the ability to transcend the boundaries of art to become future relics in their own right.
I create contemporary sculpture that pays homage to the skills of the Blacksmith and the Stonemason.
Constantly dealing with separation and unity, force and tension, rigidity and plasticity as I strive to embrace the pure essence of the sculptural form.

I’m a hobby blacksmith operating from my home built coal forge in my back yard. I’ve been smithing for only a few weeks, at weekends only (winter nights and no lighting in my yard). I’ve made a number of hot and cold hand tools, my first blade as well as a range of viking inspired jewelry.
I’m looking to network with other local smith to share ideas and resources.

Drawing is fundamental to my art.

I want my work to entertain in the same way that music does, to make the metal dance. It’s about communicating – it’s joyous. I like to think I can show people another world.
I originally studied painting at Chelsea College of Art but started making sculptures twenty years ago, when I discovered the combination of strength and malleability of metal when heated. Drawings quickly become forms.
The images that I portray tend to be derived from the natural world or from classical and mythological sources, but I’m also very interested in the mechanics of things, practical technology, and my most recent pieces sometimes include a kinetic aspect. The school gates I designed and built in Brighton as a public art commission demonstrate a marriage of artistic and technical abilities.
As well as fine art sculpture I produce bespoke metalwork, public commissions, and furniture. I also conduct art workshops for schools, colleges and teachers.
