Custom functional and decorative metalwork.

Custom work is about conceiving a design and shaping it into existence. And for me, it’s about bringing the same love of creating to my work today that I learned when my dad first taught me to weld on the gravel driveway of our ranch in Colorado.

I design and build each piece by hand using new or salvaged metal, often with tile, wood and glass. With each new project I look to design that is unusual but not intrusive, and with each client, I work to create unique pieces that fit their vision.
