The artistic touch of metal

  • • Steaven started metalwork as a farrier
  • • He travelled around Europe learning blacksmithing
  • • Combining craft and art is essential to his work

Steaven Richard started his professional life wanting to discover various mindsets, which is why he travelled through Europe for ten years learning blacksmithing in Germany, Ireland and England. Following his training as a farrier, Steaven turned to blacksmithing for its artistic possibilities, a fundamental part of his work to this day. Opening his own workshop in 2001 was the beginning of this never-ending research for new techniques and artistic possibilities, two facets of his work that he has developed simultaneously. This need for superior craftsmanship – combined with an artistic vision of what metal can be – brought him to invent techniques unique to his work and sought after by the prestigious institutions he collaborates with.
