It’s a place where cold hard iron is brought to life through fire and man power. The blacksmith works alone, manipulating and sculpting tough, unforgiving materials into works of art.

You’ll find Adrian Stapleton in a small forge at the end of his garden off the beaten track in rural Lincolnshire. It’s here that he gives life to steel and iron, creating anything from custom iron gates to one-off pieces of art. There’s no formula, just care and attention – so every single piece is different to the next.
