Using a combination of traditional blacksmithing techniques and modern technology, Charis creates elegant contemporary works of art in steel. With designs that are often surprisingly delicate, she likes to challenge people’s preconceptions of what is possible with a lump of metal and a hammer.
Plants and animals feature strongly in her work and the natural world provides an unending source of inspiration.
Based at Etruria Industrial Museum in Stoke, Charis regularly demonstrates to the public as well as providing tuition in basic blacksmithing. Commissions large and small are always welcome.
