ALAN WILLIAMS METAL ARTIST
Alan is an international, award-winning artist, working from his traditional blacksmith forge deep in the heart of the Sussex Downs in the United Kingdom.
Forging with flame and hammer in steel, iron and copper, his sculptures are graceful and introcate yet brutal homages to the natural world and mythical creatures.
New pieces are available regularly, and Alan accepts bespoke commissions for sculpture, architectural elements and more.
I use ancient objects, machine parts and industial materials, breathing new life into them by heating, beating, bending, welding and crafting.
I weave these objects and their history
into my forms to create introcate and natural pieces inspired by the brutal and magical forces of nature and Earth's creatures.
Whether it's the tentacles of an octopus, or the feather plumage of an osprey, I want you to feel the history of these objects as they return to life as beings instilled with a passion and love for craft.
I work closely with my patrons and clients to bring them into the creation process, making your commission yours, deeply personal and bespoke.
