Clare Robertson works under the creative name of 'MissFire', also the name of her company established in 2008.
Her vision for MissFire had led her to create work for a wide variety of clients, collaborate with an exciting array of talented artists, and build a business known for it's unique, fresh approach to an ancient craft.
Inspiration is most often found in the beauty of the natural world. My style is fluid, organic, delicate, full of life, with a passion for colour and surface texture. Art nouveau is a huge influence and lends itself well to hot-forged metalwork.
Her ability to imagine, design and manufacture pieces that satisfy the specific requirements and personal tastes of her customers has resulted in a vibrant collection of exciting, and often functional, works of art in steel and copper. Mainly for the home, garden, gifts and public spaces. Exhibits locally throughout the year, upcoming dates can be seen on the website.
Commissions undertaken. If you have the seedling of an idea you wish to see brought to life please contact MissFire who will be happy to discuss it with you and begin the creative process.
Currently based at The Blacksmith's Shop in an ancient iron mine, MissFire has great respect for the history surrounding blacksmithing but believes the future of the craft lies within finding new ways to produce work, embracing new technology and offering clients quality and originality at a reasonable price.
