WHO WE ARE...
our preferred style reflects the elegant, geometric boldness of the art deco era with western, lodge, and native american influence. However, we do think that imitating others stifles creativity so we believe that one should follow his own path..........................
And we believe that the pathway to good blacksmith design is found through the old methods. that said: all metal components are forged in their entirety to create a rich texture in three dimensions. traditional joinery SUCH AS: FORGE WELDS, COLLARS, TENONS RIVETS, AND WRAPPED JOINTS ARE USED AS DESIGN ELEMENTS. OLD WORLD CRAFTSMANSHIP AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL ARE FORGED INTO Every COMPONENT.
