Chris EckersleyChris Eckersley:
In His Own Words

“In 2014, Richard and Juliet invited me, Anthony Dickens, and a couple of other designers down to the Forge to have a look at what they were doing. They were after a new lighting range; maybe we could help… We made a few trips and each time stayed for a couple of days. We learnt a bit about blacksmithing - or at least as much as you can in a short time - and we went to the pub by pony-and-trap. Through trial and error we began to discover what sorts of shapes and processes are appropriate to this type of making. Our original ideas were over-engineered; we soon learnt that this is metal-bashing in its purist form where evidence of the hammer blows on the finished product is as important as anything else. ‘The Forge Standard Lamp’ is one of the results of this collaboration.

“Made by the Forge is unusual in that the company is a small manufacturing business that has realised that to move its craft forward, the makers need to work with designers. For us designers this was just the sort of opportunity that we love - we get to learn a new skill; Richard and Juliet get designs for new products. And now hopefully the relationship will grow: British design combined with the best of traditional British craft skill.”
