David Hyde's Blacksmith Forge, Workshop and Studio

"... stylish, elegant, and bespoke metalwork ..."

Sturminster Marshall, Dorset

Verdigris' owner David Hyde has a passion for designing and making creative, sculptural and artistic metalwork. This passion encompasses a wide and diverse spectrum of disciplines and skills. These include ... jewellery making, bronze casting, blacksmithing, coppersmithing, repousse, sheetmetalwork, precision machining, welding and fabrication... basically David is skilled in, and enjoys, just about any aspect of metalworking when used creatively!

The tools and machinery he has acquired (or designed and made) over the years reflect this diversity, as does his eclectic and comprehensive body of work. David's portfolio ranges in scale from sculpture covering the side of a warehouse through to bronze castings that capture every detail and all the nuances of tiny seeds and berries.

This page gives a selected insight into David's studio/workshop/forge and his creatively stimulating working environment.
