My Journey

The Beginning

KASHIEF BOOLEYArtist Blacksmith & Designer

My journey as a blacksmith started in 2002 in Cape Town, South Africa. I am currently based in Prince Albert in the Karoo where I settled in 2010 with my family.

I am self-taught with no formal training, just driven by a passion for design and the magic of the fire.

The Craft

There is a special mysticism to the art of blacksmithing as it is such an ancient craft, and fusing these techniques with modern design inspires me to create timeless master pieces for clients with an appreciation for the craft, quality and the preservation of this artform.

The Product

At Striking Metal Blacksmith Forge we are extremely versatile in what we do and work closely with our clients to produce metalwork with a difference that will last the test of time.

The Result

I share my studio with another blacksmith, Rob Hanney, and together we tackle a diversity of projects as seen in my portfolio.

I look forward to discussing your requirements with you.
