Combining original contemporary design and high quality craftmanship, James creates work that is firmly rooted in the present. In contrast to much ironwork today, James's work is characterised by clean lines and considered details. He is interested in exploring the process of making, combining heat, force and ingenuity to manipulate this most dynamic of materials. A passion for craftmanship and an inherent appreciation of forged metal are themes that run throughout his work.
James approach is informed by his background which combines both an arts degree with a hands on appreticeship/journeyman training. These two very different educational paths have given James much creative insight into his practice as a maker.
