Free standing and wall mounted art.

Mirrors......through the looking glass...

Here are a few of the mirrors I've made. Large and small.

Tables....and more tables...

Tables of all sizes. From small plant stands to huge dining tables. And everything in between.


Interior and exterior.

Processes... How we get from...

Making "house jewelry".... In this section I plan to share the day to day noteworthy steps that go into making a piece of ornamental metal


I must mention that some larger jobs are the results of a "team" of skilled craftsmen. I'm a firm believer in giving credit where it is due, and with that in mind, I will always try to add any info regarding others participation in a project. I've had the unfortunate experience of not getting credit for my work in the past, and would never want to do that to another craftsman.

Designs..........many come from "design books" like Treasury of Ironwork Designs, Wrought Iron in Architecture, Art Nouveau Decorative Ironwork, Decorative Ironwork of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance which are available from Dover.

Other great resources...are.. Catalogue of Drawings for Wrought Ironwork - by CoSIRA.
