Forged Mantle Mirror

With the broad range of work we create, it follows that we work with a broad range of clients. From homeowners to architects, contractors to community boards, we've done it all. This particular project was brought to us by an interior designer looking for a large custom mirror to go over the client's mantle.

Here's the finished mirror hanging in the front hall of our studios.

A few detail shots.

And a rough summary of the process. Notice the steps in creating the individually handforged leaves, from paper template to steel blank form to shaping the hot form on both the anvil and a wooden block.

Our latest custom coat racks

Time for another round-up of our most recent custom coat racks! You can see more examples in our past blog posts and in our portfolio.

The fun part about the coat racks included here is that each was inspired by the details, colors, or style of an existing coat rack. That makes each piece a truly satisfying collaboration between our style and the client's preferences.

Here's a series of work-in-progress shots.

A few odds and ends

Time for a few of the smaller projects Kyle worked on over the winter!

Sometimes the cobblers children do have shoes. Kyle made these custom-fit awnings for the front and rear entrances to our studio building. The frames and brackets are forged steel and an aluminum top is riveted to the frame.

Kyle fabricated this custom sign bracket for the Yoga Dojo, one our neighboring businesses in Scott's Addition.

These boss beauties are hand-forged refrigerator door pulls. How'd you like a fridge like that??
