HAND-WROUGHT

COPPER & IRON

"A work conceived with its surroundings in mind and executed with honest, uncompromising details is, in my opinion, the essence of true art. It's something to live for, and aspire to."
JEM

John's hand-wrought copper and iron work is the pinnacle of craftsmanship. From custom fences and gates with original or reproduction designs, to hand-forged sconces, lanterns, brackets signs, grilles or grates – your imagination and interest is the only limit. When properly designed and fabricated, solid copper gates and railings are as functional and appropriately strong as steel. Bronze or solid copper gates never need any paint or maintenance, and can offer unparalleled beauty in their many varied patinas.
