Leszek Sikon Blacksmith

Originally from Poland, I came to UK 12 years ago. I earnt a decent living as a middle manager in the
retail yet this career left me feeling wholly unfulfilled. I knew that I wanted to create something that would
last. I was used to getting dirty and working with my hands so I was thrilled to learn that Hereford
College of Arts ran a blacksmithing course. The next thing I knew, I’d quit my job and started training.
Since then I have developed and produced a series of superb artisan tools and knives, using age old skills to produce modern objects of desire. My inspiration comes from the history and the traditional methods, getting to grips with hammer, tongs, and fire. For me having these skills has paid off more than a career in retail ever would.
