One of our expertise includes designing and producing sketches and detailed drawings based on meetings where customers express their visions, while carefully attending to functionality and assuring that the products suite their intended environments.
When customers approve the designs, we engage in the blacksmithing craft.
Unlike cast iron (i.e., the use of moulds) or mass production, ornamental blacksmithing involves the forming of metal using traditional blacksmithing techniques and tools (e.g., forge, hammer, anvil, tongs, and the power hammer). Thus, we create masterpieces through the strategic manipulation of metal that is heated to malleability in the forge within a specific window of time.
Attention to Detail:
We take pride in attending to the details of our work, as this is where our command of the expressive movement of metal is most evident.
Combination of Materials:
Although most people assume that blacksmithing leads to purely metal products, we often incorporate other materials, such as glass, stone, and wood, into the metal work. These combinations provide endless possibilities of what can be accomplished and styles that can complement the surrounding environment.
The final step involves choosing an appropriate finish that brings the details all together and completes the visual effect. The right finish is determined by the kind of product, it’s use (e.g., stand-alone visual sculpture versus tangible handrail), and where it is situated (i.e., indoor versus outdoor; level of humidity, etc.). There are a wide variety of finishes and their combinations that can be used, including hand and spray painting, patina, chemical processing, galvanizing, powder coating, etc.
