A ‘poor man’s blacksmith’

27 May, 2012

Old Bus Depot Markets Stallholder: Joseph PeadyApplauded for his expert craftsmanship and well finished one-of-a-kind designs, Joseph Peady is a stallholder you won’t want to miss.

Creating hand crafted garden sculptures, unique gifts and candelabras from wire and recycled metal is certainly a unique occupation, but Joseph was destined to create.  A graduate of the Canberra School of Art, his range includes best sellers; mini flower-shaped candelabras that hold tea lights with beautiful glass bead detailing – to large scale statement pieces, his candelabras.

 

Joseph refers to himself as a ‘poor man’s blacksmith’ but his creations are skillfully executed and finished to precision.  Once a furniture designer and maker, Joseph started creating his stunning sculptures and candelabras 18 months ago, and has been selling at the markets for 12 months. His candelabras promise to create a dazzling atmosphere, emitting a beautiful candle-lit glow. A lover of form, design and craftsmanship, all of Joseph’s creations are extremely eye catching.

If you didn’t see him last time you were at the markets, well – you now have a reason to go back!
