Video summary: Forging a bottle opener. Music by myself.

Traditional blacksmith focusing on functional and artistic ironwork.

The discovery of iron was pivotal in the evolution of our species. The art of blacksmithing is one of the oldest traditions we have, and one I feel is important to keep alive.

All of my work is made with hammer, anvil, and fire. The heat of the forge, the glow of the hot metal, and sound of the hammer... it elicits a response that feels like home. Knowing that the finished piece will end up in the home of someone else, for generations to come, inspires me to keep making. Whether it's forming delicate drawer handles for a cupboard, joining the pieces if a twisting garden trellis, or cupping the ladle of a kitchen set, I am committed to using traditional techniques to make each piece the highest quality possible.

My hope is that, while continuing to keep the art of blacksmithing alive, I am able to create work that speak to you as well. Pieces that allow you to feel the connection to the past, to tradition.

I believe that hand-made objects hold meaning that a mass produced object will never achieve. By buying a piece created by an craftsperson, you support not only that individual, but also help by moving our culture away from cheaply made and mass produced objects. I look forward to hearing your ideas and discussing how we can make them come to life together.

Thank you for supporting traditional handmade craft.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to work with you on custom and personalized orders. Once we've agreed on a design, price, and you've purchased the order I cannot refund or exchange the order. Custom orders often involve buying special materials and extra labor in the planning and making process.

Likewise, if you wish for a stock item to be modified please contact me before purchasing with your idea as the price may vary from the original listing.

Care instructions

It is good practice to not let handmade ironwork soak or remain wet for extended periods as it will eventually rust. Drying the iron after it is wet is the best practice. For pieces that will be touched often this is not a worry because a natural coating will build up from your hands. Some pieces, like the towel bars, I give a clear enamel that will protect them further from moisture and prevent towels from staining. If the object is to be used in the kitchen a light coat of food-safe oil can be applied for further care.

For a piece that has rusted slightly or has lost its shine you can take a piece of steel wool and scrub the iron to clean it up. A light coat of oil or wax is never a bad idea either.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Why did my purchase arrive in this strange looking box?

I often use recycled boxes to ship my wares. It's better for the earth.

I do not currently offer gift wrapping.
