The Elf's Tale

The Copper Elf works from a small forge on the edge of the hamlet of Glendon in the historic Rockingham Forest. This is the story of how he got there:

John (The Elf) spent too many years sat at a desk writing computer software. There was a need in him to return to traditional rural trades and skills and he started to work one day a week laying hedges, managing an orchard and mowing a meadow (seasonally of course).

The real change in direction happened when he met the Iron Dwarf who invited him to have a go with a forge and hot steel; a calling was found. A few months later John met up with a master Irish tinker and learnt the art of traditional copper seamed buckets and vessels, the Elf was born. At this time John turned off the computer and picked up the hammers full time. Over the following years the Copper Elf researched historic copper products whilst continuing to make the accompanying ferrous components and is now specialist in historic domestic copperware.
