Lucy Sandys-Clarke
Artisan Blacksmith

From the old Smithy in the Dales village of Dent, near Sedbergh in Cumbria, I produce hand-made pieces of bespoke ironwork using an open coke fire, and the tools and techniques employed by generations of blacksmiths.

“In iron we possess a substance from which can be made the thick, heavy ribs of the vessel of war, the slender blade of a surgeon’s knife, or the exquisitely artistic leaf work of the chancel screen”
Paul Hasluck, 1907
