Alex Pole Ironwork was established in 2006 to provide high quality, contemporary and functional metalwork for the home and garden.
Alex has had a lifelong passion for metalwork of all types and started his training as a jewellery maker in 1990, he followed this with blacksmithing in 1994, and has worked professionally in both fields ever since.
Both modern and traditional techniques are used at the forge in South Somerset where all work is produced by hand and, wherever possible, using materials sourced from the local area.
As well as developing new products for the range Alex spends a great deal of time designing and making bespoke commissions for private clients, project managers and furniture designers. He also runs regular courses in blacksmithing.
One of his primary aims is to promote British blacksmithing and to make it accessible, and affordable, to the general public.
Alex is fully committed to running a sustainable UK business and will reuse, recycle, and salvage when and where he can.
