Graduate designer Hubert Kruft learned the blacksmith's trade from his father in his parents' business and then studied design in Aachen. Since autumn 2013, he has been passing on his knowledge to our son Lukas.
In this way, an old village blacksmith's shop gradually developed into a workshop for artistic metal design, which he ran together with his late brother Alfred Kruft and which is now already being run by the fifth generation.
Where oxen and horses were shod in the past, copper is now mainly hammered, but steel is also forged. All the copper work here is made individually by hand and is therefore unique.
The strictly naturalistic works that you come across again and again are cast in bronze and are carefully selected and purchased by us.
Another important area of Hubert Kruft's work is the performing art made from old farming implements, which he has already presented at several art exhibitions, as well as his sculptures made from Corten steel.
Not to forget the numerous fountains, which are handmade from solid copper.
