Ben Hoogland is a qualified, licensed metal fabricator who trained in traditional joinery methods under sixth generation Croatian blacksmith Josef Balog. He has also worked in industrial fabrication using modern techniques and is able to combine these two forms of metal fabrication to produce items for the home that are strong, long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. Ben is now plying his trade in the blue mountains where he is residing but is also happy to service the greater Sydney area. Hot working steel is limited only by the imagination and budget. He is happy to discuss any project you may be interested in from furniture and fittings inside the home to gates, railings and landscape features outside.
Ben works to commission for a wide range of clients, from private individuals to architects and designers. His work is equally diverse ranging from large outdoor features to smaller interior pieces. He loves to work with an idea or theme from the client and incorporate it into a design that is then a collaboration between client and maker. He is also keen on re-purposing and re-using steel and timber and can incorporate an object of particular interest to the client into a design.
