About the Company
Jonne set up ferrous furnishings in 2016 following the success of The Gardener’s Blacksmith in 2015, (see www.thegardenersblacksmith.co.uk) as a second semi-retirement business to keep himself sane, sociable and solvent, tapping into more artistic roots that did not get a chance to breathe in his professional life as an innovation and leadership consultant and coach. He works in East Devon with a forge in Axminster..
As gardeners Jonne and Tricia are interested in designing a range of useful and practical plant supports and this is how the first business began. When he began making structures some early commissions for furniture from friends quickly led to an interest in designing and constructing furniture for both the home and garden. One of the advantages of constructing in metal is that many of the products can work either indoors or outdoors, one simply needs to pay attention to the finish.
If you have an idea for something you want created in metal, please give Jonne a call to discuss your ideas. If it is not something he can help you with he will most likely be able to direct you to another blacksmith who can, as each artist/blacksmith tends to focus on specific areas of interest. There are many practitioners across the UK.
