Welcome to my site. My name is Will Jones - I’ve been involved in blacksmithing for twenty five years or more, progressing from toolmaking and fabrication for a plastic moulding company to a decade at Culworth Forge nr. Banbury, Oxon, followed by another ten years or so running my own business as IRONWILL from a little forge / workshop near the village of Little Horwood, Bucks.
I am lucky enough to engage in a huge variety of work, from restoration and replication of historic ironwork to specialist fireplace and chimney work, to contemporary architectural and ornamental metalwork, to sculpture and jewelry.
My work is on display everywhere from royal palaces to homes of celebrities, stately homes and the buildings and grounds of well known institutions and charities, but also a great many private family homes and gardens locally.
At Culworth I was known as the “go to guy” for tricky or unusual commissions and repairs, and I still pride myself in stretching my skills and knowledge to meet my clients’ requests - so try me - although discretion is occasionally the better part of valour, I’m rarely stumped!
