    Lee Portwain - an artistic blacksmith

    I founded Twisting Metal in 2018 after spending over 25 years honing my craft as a blacksmith.

     

    In that time Iworked on a variety of projects, and my work has been displayed at the Chelsea Fower Show and Hampton Court.

     

    Now I design and create my own pieces of metalwork and help others to bring their ideas to life.

     

    I'm passionate about working with metal-twisting ,shaping, bending, and refining it- to create bepoke pieces that are artistic, functional and last forever.

     

    When I'm not busy in the forge I've got a pencil and pad in my hands, sketchingand designing ideas for new pieces, inspired by science, the natural world and by artists such as H R Giger, Alex Grey and Hieronymus Bosch.

     

    If you've got an idea for a project, get in touch and let's creat something together.
