Growing up in the same village as the famous sculptor Henry Moore, Ian was exposed to design at an early age, becoming a silversmith with his own hallmark at 16 years old.
A chance meeting with an interior designer led him to start designing and manufacturing door hardware 15 years ago, become part of the DJH Group in 2005.
As well as designing Finesse products, Ian regularly visits dealers and kitchen designers providing a unique invaluable feedback for use in the design process.
Design and Tooling
Traditionally all designs were hand drawn and master patterns hand made before moulding and casting into Pewter.
Recent investment in state of the art 3D design and rapid prototyping software and machinery has revolutionised this process and made the quality of detail and reproduction even better.
