Trying to dial in my trim mounding game for this next piece. Forged bronze but the woodworker in the shop says that if it were wood, it should have only taken 30 minutes not most of the afternoon... #blacksmithing #stupidest #ironstudio

It's official! We've been awarded the commission for the entry gates at the soon to be built Discovery Center, the newest jewel in Philadelphia's park system. It features a repurposed reservoir as a migratory bird sanctuary and nature center and will also be a staging ground for Outward Bound and the Audubon Society . This project is near and dear to my heart as a proud Philadelphian because it does so much for the community and says so much about who we are and what we value. #philly #contemporarymetaldesign #publiccommission #architecturaldesign #ironstudio #digsau
