Lucille combines the wonderful age old techniques of the blacksmiths craft with contemporary design and a modern aesthetic. Much of the inspiration for my work comes from living by the sea all my life combined with the construction and joining methods that feature so strongly in this ancient craft. Typically I work with a range of clients including architects and interior designers but particularly the business is aimed at private individuals who appreciate craftsmanship and have an eye for detail.
