About My Ironwork

My ironwork is built using traditional forging methods with clarity of design appropriate for today’s architectural environment. Although the techniques I use to work the iron are old-world, they allow for flexibility in design on projects that are either traditional or contemporary in nature.

I design each commission to function well in the given architectural environment and I execute all projects with attention to detail and uncompromising craftsmanship. The design of my ironwork is fundamentally bound to the production process – traditional joinery techniques including rivets, collars, hot-punched mortise holes and forged tenons serve as the focal points of the ironwork but do not limit the design to “traditional” motifs.

I find artistic merit in traditional blacksmithing techniques and believe that the labor intensive nature of the process that requires specialized equipment and skills adds value and beauty to the finished product.
