About Tasman Forge

Tasman Forge is based in Nelson, New Zealand. Founded by designer, Tim Bleackley, he produces a range of high quality wrought iron door and custom ironwork (custom made door handles, handcrafted balustrades etc). Tim has over 20 years experience in ironwork which he uses to combine his original designs with attention to detail. Each piece is individually hand crafted and created from hot forged mild steel.

After sketching his designs, Tim loves nothing more than getting his hands dirty. He turns his working drawings into beautiful tactile pieces at the forge.

“My passion is to create unique pieces, combining my design ideas with traditional forging techniques and modern methods that can withstand the test of time in both style and durability… I love to combine form and functionality together with line and proportion”

Individual commissions and products from the Tasman Forge range can be found in private residences, hotels and boutique accommodation worldwide.
