My first job was as a coachbuilder in the late 80’s making body panels from scratch. The first test piece I was set was to make a set of Bugatti mudguards. I passed and went on to be involved with some great projects over the years. I subsequently studied Automotive Engineering Design and entered the mass production environment as a Quality Engineer. Involved with prototype vehicles (Aston Martin DB7, MGF, Rolls Royce etc) and engineered parts I gained valuable skills along the way. Today I combine skills from old and new to create unique and beautiful pieces.
Working from my studio from the heart of the National Forrest, Ashby de la Zouch, I aim to create pieces of craft and art for all to enjoy. I take pleasure in working with aluminium due to its longevity; maintaining its original colour and beauty as it ages.
I make decorative small pieces, outdoor ornaments and also accept commissions. All items can be personalised and I am happy to discuss any requirements you may have I order to bring your ideas to life.
I began making holly wreaths in 2014 which sold very well so began to investigate other products not so seasonal. I currently have butterflies, flowers and bracelets as well as others among my collection at www.aluminiuart.co.uk
