Big Black House Design Co

Welcome To

Big Black House

Hello, thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find my unique, and ever growing collection of work that I have created over the last number of years.

As one of Britain’s up-and-coming female blacksmiths, I specialise in combining the unique elements of both wood and metal, to create beautiful, contemporary and highly individual pieces.

From my workshop in the heart of West Yorkshire’s Pennine hills, I have created a diverse portfolio of work which includes furniture, for both home and garden, sculpture, garden accessories and gifts. My work can be ordered directly from the website, or if you are looking for something more unusual, please contact me for bespoke pieces.

About

I launched my own company, Big Black House Design Co. in 2002 – so titled, as my home and thus, workshops, were once described by the local postman as ‘big and black and you can’t miss it’. The name stuck and has since been earning me a reputation for highly individual and creative work.
