Artist and Creative Metalworker
Established outside Welshpool in Mid Wales, Angus Eickhoff creates items of bespoke metal work to commission. Each work is designed by Angus himself and is constructed to the highest standards of craftsmanship.
A graduate of Camberwell School of Art in London, Angus undertook further training in blacksmithing and now specialises in working with forged steel.
With a design style that lends itself perfectly to the production of contemporary, beautiful, unique furnishings for homes and gardens, Angus's work incorporates all aspects of skilled metalworking whilst preserving traditional techniques.
Whilst constantly developing his skills and exploring new design ideas and concepts, Angus regularly uses his knowledge of the history of metal working to produce his pieces. His work exists not only as "art" but also often as functioning items, that can be used and enjoyed on a day to day basis. His fully equipped workshop allows him to produce pieces on any scale and to any specification.
Having set up his workshop in 1980, Angus has worked as artist in residence for Bersham Industrial Heritage Centre, near Wrexham, has taught at The University of Central Lancashire and Wrexham College of Art. He has produced commissions for, amongst others; The National Trust, Hampton Court Palace, The Tower of London and The Andrew Logan Museum of Sculpture and has received a number of awards for his work throughout his career.
