Anvil's Ring is the magazine of the Artist Blacksmiths Association of North America (ABANA). In 2020 they asked me to write an article discussing some of the themes of my latest book Artist Blacksmith Design


The Art Behind Blacksmithing was published in the May 2020 edition of the Anvil's Ring Magazine

I wrote a feature for the British Artist Blacksmiths Association, documenting the design and build of a life-sized Phoenician chariot which I was commissioned to make for Durham Oriental Museum in 2016.

In June 2016 I will be included in a feautre entitled Handmade in Britain for MOGMAG, the official magazine for Morgan Cars, featuring images of my sculptural work.


As Morgan cars are still hand made in the UK, the magazine likes to feature other British makers like myself who still use traditional techniques.


The Whitechapel Bell Foundry was recently featured. 


I have just written a feature for The Anvil's Ring  (Magazine of the Artist Blacksmith's Association of North America. This will be published in August 2016 and is entitled The Modern Face of an Ancient Craft

In April 2015 I wrote a guest blog for THE METAL STORE in the UK, a metals supply company seeking to enhance its web presence and reach by feasturing the work of artists and craftspeople.


I agreed to be featured provided I could author my own content, a piece called Design and Creativity in Metal, featuring images of my sculptural work.
