Artist Statement

Metal Manipulation started in 2015 when we made a small table lamp for a friend who wanted something unique, so we formed our first lamp consisting of a large nut base and chain body which is now also in our current range.

It was this that started it off, this one lamp turned  into twenty lamps through friends and family and later that year we had our first stockist locally in a small village. In 2016 we opened a small old workshop and turned it into our showroom in the lovely village of Tutbury where we showcased lots of different lamps and furniture.

I myself as a qualified fabricator welder and blacksmith used my skills and knowledge to make unique and bespoke lighting and furniture with an industrial style and feel. I first started making the odd lamp and table around my previous job as a on site forman for a local engineering firm but now, as the business has grown dramatically, I decided that I needed to give it my full attention.

Metal manipulation work is now very much in trend and on point in the world of interior design. With nearly thirty outlets around the country we are always trying to be different and one step ahead with slight little details that make all the difference. We pride ourselves on the quality of parts and detailed welding and always try to use the best fittings avalible so you buy a product from MM that is second to none……
