Thomas Forging

Blacksmithing is when metal is heated in a forge and hammered into shape. Most commonly forged metals are steel, stainless steel, copper and brass.

Thomas takes great pride in taking the time to get his forging projects just right. He works closely with his clients to achieve the exact design they have in mind. This gallery shows Thomas working on:

Lily makes beautiful gauze and Italian linen curtains for her clients’ homes around Byron Shire. All of Lily’s work is completely custom made, she often finds it tricky to hang curtain rods and tie-backs that reflect her standard of work and aesthetic.

She commissioned Thomas to create a series of custom products that suited her clients’ needs and style of their homes. His completed works includes room partitions and hand-forged tie-back hooks. The highlight is the steel curtain rods which are finished off with forged scroll-work finials in black then mounted on an antique Indian hook blocks sourced from Ha’veli.

When the team at Uncle Project Byron Bay asked us if we could help with an upcoming project we couldn’t help but say yes – what an awesome bunch of human beings.

Laurent made an oversized Polaroid frame for their photo booth at Bluesfest 2018 which sat alongside Future Dreamers’s stall.
