Commissions

Have you got a blacksmithing project or commission that you’ve been pondering – for a short period of time, or something that’s at the back of your mind for ages?

I may be the blacksmith that you’ve been looking for. I take on large or small blacksmithing commissions and see each project as a collaboration between me, the client and the possibilities of what can be achieved on the forge.

You can see a couple of my commissions below, one for a blacksmith forged sculpture (The Lady), and a sign for Orhan Tailoring orhanlondontailoring.com, a tailor on Pitfield Street in the Old Street area of the City of London.

If you’re ready to talk about your artist blacksmithed work, whether it’s a sculpture, a shop or house sign, a companion fireside set, a gate, railings, a kitchen knife or something else – big or small, you can contact me on 01923 350596, 07854 363630 or peter@petefire.co.uk

Orhan London Tailoring – blacksmith forged shop sign just off Old Street, East London. The shop featured in The Apprentice, when one of the apprentices managed to get paint on the existing sign. The scissors were based on a pair that Orhan has had for more than 25 years.
