Who We Are

Relevant Design is dedicated to working with our hands in the process of blacksmithing. Creating pieces of work that we can be proud to own and use, with a strong connection to our past. Our inspiration comes from the process of shaping hot iron and meeting the design needs of today. This is the catalyst for what we do.

Our Story

As smoke and hammer continued on, his desire led him to start his own business so he could buy the required material to keep forging on. One craft show lead to the next and pretty soon there came along the massive life jolting custom commissions (or at least to a 15 year old) which tied him over as summer jobs between his high school years. Now with necessary formal education out of the way, he left his home town of Abbotsford and moved across province to take up a four year apprenticeship with a blacksmith. Learning many new things about blacksmithing and team work! With a still unquenched entrepeneur desire in him, he came back to his home town and restarted his small company of long ago. With nothing more then a vague business plan in action, he asked his long time sweetheart to marry him. She said yes in faith. As the years went by with the focus on architectural forge work, his passion for blacksmithing had not dwindled, but his desire turned to make pieces that would be more functional and life based. Bringing forgework into more practical and tangible ways, to go back to the root of what the blacksmith is about – to build for the necessity of life. This was the budding transformation that has caused Relevant Design to be born and start filling that role.
