Peter Brammer immigrated to New Zealand in 2001 and settled in Maungatapere, Whangarei in 2003 where he has a workshop and a gallery. Brammer has an intimate knowledge of steel and metals with over twenty-six years experience working as an engineer and artistic craftsman. For the past sixteen years he has focused on being an artist and blacksmith. To construct his pieces he works in both the traditional and contemporary methods. Using steel, with the aesthetic of other materials such as wood and stone, he will produce anything from chairs and tables to candelabras and sculptural works. All the pieces are bespoke; designed and created by hand and can be made to customer requirements.
