Andrew Findlay has been forging artisitic metalwork for 30 years.
During this time he has developed many interesting and innovative techniques and textures to apply to his work. He is happy to use both traditional and modern tools and methods to achieve the desired effect.
Andrew’s work and design style is influenced but the great Art Nouveau and Art Deco artists and designers such as Antoni Gaudi, Victor Horta and Edgar Brandt, particularly in the way that their distinctive and sometimes unconventional work was successfully integrated into large architectural projects.
Finish is all important, patinated zinc, reactive copper paint, bronze and copper patinas, rusting, electropolished and heat coloured stainless are used in preference to paints.
He works in steel, bronze and stainless steel and has completed many major commissions in the UK and worldwide including Dubai, New York, Monaco And Italy. He has demonstrated his craft internationally and has been an artist in residence at the prestigious Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee.
Andrew works mainly to commission and is happy to receive enquiries from Architects, Landscapers and Private Clients.
