Lothlorien Studio

Multi awarded artist blacksmith & wood worker

At Takalarup, overlooking the ancient and picturesque Porongurup and Stirling Ranges, multi award winning artist, blacksmith and woodworker Dave Taylor has built his rendered strawbale art studio and workshops to pursue his passions for wrought iron and woodwork.

The natural warmth and cave like rustic charm of the strawbale building, spectacular panoramas and the powerful ring of hammer on anvil combine to create an experience unique in the Great Southern.

Using the traditional blacksmithing techniques of ‘hammer and hand’, beautiful local and recycled timbers, and hand rubbed finishes, Dave’s work embodies his ideals of craftsmanship, artistic individuality and environmental awareness.

His bespoke work covers a wide range from award winning sculptures featuring a combination of wood and wrought iron, entry statements for local towns, furniture and home adornments, gates and railings thru to hand forged layered Damascus blades for chefs to collectors.

When he gets time Dave is also an accomplished musician, singer songwriter and plays gigs in a number of bands around the great southern.
