I am Aaron Petersen – Blacksmith. (In Welsh ‘Aaron y Gof’). I am a worker of that most magical of materials, iron. Iron is a material like no other. Steeped in history and myth its use in decorative and functional objects goes back to the early Celts. The Blacksmith is not to be mistaken for a farrier, someone who shoes horses. Unless you want your horse trotting round on a couple of pairs of 12 inch high candelabra you are probably best off finding a good farrier (highly skilled and trained equine specialists). What I produce is high quality, hand forged, metal work for the home, workplace and public spaces
I have been designing and producing ironwork both full time and part time for over two decades. I trained as part of the family business, started by my father, and continued by myself and my brothers. I have been wielding a hammer almost since I could lift one. I obtained my arts training via Newport Art College, leaving in 1987 with a BA (hons) in fine art in 1987.
