Chance Hall Ln, Congleton CW12 4TL, UK

As an artist blacksmith William Smith has had a fascination with metal from a young age, when cold its hard and unbending, but when heated and crafted it has a fluid malleable quality, and in the right hands it allows its self to form into many beautiful objects.

William (or Bill to most) has always had a love of natural forms and shapes and often takes his inspiration from nature, creating plant forms of all kinds and the use of traditional blacksmithing techniques to create contemporary form.

Dan Nauman, designer, owner and artisan at Bighorn Forge, has been forging since 1979, professionally since 1993. His work spans many styles of ornamental and architectural metalwork, and is primarily hand-forged. Gates, railings, lighting, furniture, fire-tools, sculpture and more are commonly made in Nauman’s studio. One of his specialties is the process of French repousse’, applying flowing acanthus leaves, and intricate rosettes to his metalwork. Nauman’s Northern School for Blacksmiths, a division of Bighorn Forge, is where Nauman teaches up to eleven different workshops, from beginning forging to French repousse’. Nauman also teaches, demo’s and lectures around the USA at colleges, craft schools, and museums. Nauman has been fortunate to have restored and reproduced work by the famed Austrian born master blacksmith, Cyril Colnik (1871-1958), and also produced a video on Colnik entitled, Forged Elegance, that aired on Wisconsin Public Television, and also Milwaukee Public Television in 1998. Nauman served as a board member for the Artist-Blacksmith’s Association of North America (ABANA) from 2000-2006, and chaired the Controlled Hand Forging committee, which wrote 28 lessons about basic forging. Currently, Nauman is the editor/designer of ABANA’s The Hammer’s Blow, and as of 2017, will also be the editor/designer of The Anvil’s Ring.
