Stephen Rook FWCB
Craftsman in forged steel

Steve has been an established blacksmith for over 32 years and is a Silver Medal holder of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths. His workshop is based in Balfron near Loch Lomond. It is here where Steve creates one off forged metalwork commissions, for private and public clients, using traditional and modern techniques. The method itself is simple enough - lengths of iron, heated in the forge, are brought to the anvil, where they are hammered and worked with different tools. It is the craftsman’s energy and passion, which infuses the metal with a life and character of its own. Design and material coalesce into one harmonious whole. Steve under takes commissions across the UK, and has recently completed projects in the city of London and Oxford.
