"Paul Sheppard gives a fabulous bespoke service at a very competitive price. Sound advice, very helpful and excellent workmanship. I am delighted with my new rose arch."
Alyson Kennea, Tockington
"Paul made me a terrific metal framed glass topped coffee table to my specifications and design. I am really very pleased with it and it is well admired. The standard of workmanship is excellent; I would say far better than premium tables in high end designer stores. What is more, Paul was so easy to work with. He listened carefully to what I wanted, bore patiently as I changed my mind, and was clearly intent on creating a table that I was going to be happy with. And so I am! Paul is one of those craftsmen who should be busy as long as he chooses to work. He is outstanding."
Leigh Morgan, Clifton, Bristol
"The Holman Hunt lantern is exquisite and became part of an exhibition on the theme of 'Light' held at St Mary's Church, Wotton-under-Edge. Paul replicated the lantern beautifully and finished the intricate work on time and to a very high standard."
Kate Tutty, Wotton under Edge
“We have nothing but praise for Paul Sheppard, his workmanship and professional standards. We asked him to design and make a set of pedestrian double gates to fit between existing sets of railings, on a slope and in a tight area – so by no means straightforward. From the first on-site meeting we had total confidence in his thoughtful recommendations and subsequent plans. Thanks to his meticulous measuring and checking, our gates were installed perfectly first time, painted and looking brilliant. We are not the only ones to be thrilled by his “old fashioned” approach to quality and care – a chance meeting with a garden designer confirmed our opinion and we spent some time excitedly discussing how lucky we had been to find him“
Peter and Heather Thelwall, Clifton, Bristol
"Paul listened with care and friendly understanding to our needs for a functional installation with our wishes for an ornamental enhancement to our front of house area. He came up with a design that took into account the character of our Victorian house and the ambience of the fixture. Upon our acceptance and delight with his design, he was generous with his time for further site visits to present a constructed sample of his scrollwork design, and to be sure of precise fitment and alignment measurements. We highly recommend his skilled work, and his empathetic dedication to the task."
Neil and Sue Bartle, Bristol
“Paul recently designed and created a beautiful 6ft galvanised steel memory tree for us. When I first met Paul and explained what we wanted he totally understood the brief and the importance of it to us. He has made a stunning tree and copper leaves will now hang from it, engraved with the name of a families loved one. It’s a very special tree in a very special place and I am really pleased that Paul was the blacksmith who created this for us”
Jo Gibbons, St Peter’s Hospice, Bristol
