Luke Parfitt

“I have been told I am an empath, I do not see it. I do however see a need to fill everyone with joy and food.”

Luke is an Artist Blacksmith, his passion for forging equals his passion for cooking. He started is creative journey working at a Steiner College and learning blacksmithing alongside the students. It quickly took over his life and all he wanted to do was move metal in new and exciting ways. Luke chose to follow an educational route into blacksmithing, completing a BTEC course at the National School of Blacksmithing and then BA(Hons) Artist Blacksmithing at Hereford College of Arts. Through this, he has developed a range of lovingly crafted, visually quirky, culinary related products—flippers and palm sized bottle-openers. “We are still on the journey, who knows where we will end up! Always growing and changing”, but for now, enjoy!
