Matt ‘Hammerz’ Slizankiewicz

Hi, my name is Matt ‘Hammerz’ Slizankiewicz.  Since 2004 I have owned and operated The Forgery Wrought Iron.  I have workshops in Truro and Dutton, yet traveling statewide is not a problem for us.  Currently, we are restoring and will be relocating into the 1875 Dutton Blacksmith Shop, which has been out of operation since 1942 when workers were called to war and literally dropped the tools where they stood.

From a young age, I’ve been a prolific artist, driven by my determination of perfection.  One of my many sayings is that ‘I learned to draw with an eraser’ correcting my work many times before the pencil line was perfect.  Today councils, parks, private homes, schools, corporations and government properties all share spots in my portfolio.

Restoration of Urrbrae House

Some of my more notable works are; Restorations of Urrbrae House {S.A first Govt House}

Reynella Cobb & Co, Helping Hand Aged Care Nth Adelaide.  Sculptures in Pioneer Park Truro,

Gates at Mercedes College and St Josephs College Tranmere.
