Ironart welcomes Alan Patterson & Adrian Booth

Alan Paterson - Ironart of Bath

Alan Paterson

 

We are delighted to welcome two new blacksmiths to the Ironart team. Alan Patterson is a highly experienced smith with many years of forging and some illustrious blacksmithing projects to his name. Before joining us here at Ironart, Alan ran Somerset Smithy in Frome. Alan’s knowledge will be a great asset to Ironart and we are really looking forward to working with him.

 

 

Adrian Booth recently graduated from Hereford college and came to us to gain on-the-job experience. During January Adrian worked with Jason on the Regency walled garden gates we have just completed and did a top job, earning high praise from his colleagues! He’s proving to be an invaluable member of the team and we look forward to tracking his career as a talented artist blacksmith of the future.

Trial assembly of the Sun Flower sculpture…

Many hands on deck this morning as Andy put the Sun Flower sculpture together for the first time. The whole team here in the workshop were involved, with some head-scratching and problem solving along the way. The sculpture looks incredible and will look even more striking once painted. All feeling very excited about this project, which will be the second piece of public art that we’ve had on display on the Bathwick Hill roundabout. The sculpture is for sale and we are looking for someone to fund it’s permanent installation elsewhere in the City in 2015. Please contact us on 01225 311723 if you would like more details about this.
