CUSTOM IRON WORK, RAILINGS,
FIREPLACE SCREEN DOORS & TOOLS
Since I was a young boy, I have been fascinated with what fire does to transform iron from a dull, lifeless state into an elegant, functional piece of artwork. In a way, it was inevitable that I would be drawn to moving and working iron. Growing up, I was surrounded by a family of iron workers, all of whom had a true passion for building skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, the Twin Towers, and many bridges around the greater New York City and Philadelphia areas. As a third-generation iron worker, it was natural for me to develop the same passion for iron—after all, it was all around me.
The rhythm of the hammer, the flow of the iron, and the experience of watching the iron grow beneath my hands still take me on a mythical journey that I never tire of. The relationship between art and craft enables me to create both traditional and contemporary work while occasionally dipping back in time to the medieval and Gothic periods.
Ideas for my work come to me after the workday, while perusing art books or riding my bicycle on a narrow country road and observing the natural world unfold around me.
My work is seldom forged with one hundred percent black iron. I like to bring life into my iron work by blending metals such as bronze, copper, and stainless steel. This marriage of metals gives me the opportunity to experiment with color, texture, and shape.
