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 I worked on a variety of projects, and my work has been displayed at the Chelsea Flower 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 bespoke 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, sketching and 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 create something together.
