Specialty Metal Work

iron fabrication facility

Though we enjoy the challenges and rewards of creating beautiful residential ironwork, we get excited when we're invited to participate in public art projects, like those pictured here.

In 2003, we were asked to create a wrought iron kiosk for Santa Barbara Junior High's Marjorie Luke Theatre renovation project. It was important that the design be appropriate to the 1930s era building. The project evolved to include many other wrought iron components including period light fixtures. We've since been asked to help with other important landmark renovation projects around town. Then there are the storefront awnings that became works of art, and the unusual Antioch University Donor Naming Wall project. We look forward to the future specialty art projects.
