Adam Booth started Pipers Forge in 1987 and quickly began to make a name for himself, exhibiting at the Glasgow Garden Festival and winning the Rachel Reckitt Sculpture Award in 1989 before going on to represent the UK at the EU Exhibition of Craft in Avignon, France. Recently Adam was made a fellow of the worshipful company of blacksmiths (FWCB). His work is now in great demand with commissions all over the world.
There is a strong theatrical element to Adam’s gates. They create an excitement, a sense of anticipation on approach and then opening with such ease, like a curtain lifting to reveal a stage set, they break apart inviting you to enter.
