Fusing imagination and functionality

teds-toolsOver my 25 years in the motor industry, I moved into the specialist field of historic vehicle restoration. During this time I have developed a broad skill set and enjoy using my experience to enhance projects both simple and complex.

I started predominately with sheet metal-working but soon moved onto heavier gauge materials. This led me to the realisation of the inherent beauty and the infinite possibilities that the materials had to offer.

Utilising both traditional and modern methods I started to express my more creative side. Instead of applying this to purely autotelic gewgaws, I applied my craft to everyday items such as hinges, door catches, log baskets etc.

The Dorset Copperfish is the realisation of a long held ambition to create exclusive bespoke metal items for whoever wants them.
