My art is inspired by the quality iron work of the past. Solid forged iron and steel items are shaped, welded and handcrafted with longevity and strength in mind. I use the forge, torch, hammers, anvil, benders and presses to achieve my desired results. I try and bring out the beauty in metal, having worked with metal in industry. The finishes I use are oil rubbed, painted, and bare metal. It is a joy to me to know that my art will be useful and appreciated for many years to come.
