Bill Clarke is a Roxburgh based sculptor who works alongside his wife, Michelle Clarke who is also a well-known sculptor. Together they have been forming metal into art for over 20 years.
The sculptor started the business Forged and Crafted after finding he had a passion for transforming metal into larger than life art pieces. Bill mainly worked on blacksmithing projects in the early stages of the business where he made Gates, Ornate Doors and many architecturally designed pieces, all of which were commissioned.
Now, Bill’s work consists of stainless steel sculptures of wildlife pieces from Birds of Prey to Roaring Stags & many public Monumental pieces. Bill is proud to be self-taught as this allows him to see no barriers to what he can imagine and create. His work can be seen in private and public installations throughout New Zealand as well as Australia, United Kingdom, Norway and the United States.
