DENISE AXELSEN - DENISE AXELSEN ARTISAN BLACKSMITH

Updated: Aug 2, 2020

Denise Axelsen is one talented lady. As Champion Blacksmith of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths in 2005, Denise was the first female to hold the award! She has over 20 years experience in the field and is constantly coming up with fresh new designs.


 "I believe most people have an image in their mind of what a blacksmith should look like and I’m here to break the mould. If I can do this, anyone can. It seems to be a very male dominated playing field."

The curves, organic lines and flow seen in nature compels Denise to take steel from the rack and place it in the fire. She volunteers one day a week at the Drill Hall Studio and says that being surrounded by beautiful arts and crafts all day is very inspiring and feeds her imagination.


All of her creations are made using traditional blacksmithing tools and skills in her studio in Townsville. Forming high quality products and supporting other creatives is very important to Denise and when she isn't creating, you'll find her doing yoga, gardening and living a healthy, active life!
