Iron & Wire was founded in 1998 as means to produce superior crafted ironwork. As a recent graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago I was heavily inspired by Chicago’s rich architectural and ornamental heritage. The name Iron & Wire was gleamed from one of the many decorative fire escapes that caught my eye as I traveled through the city. With tradition in mind, I pursued education in blacksmithing, foundry and structural ironwork as conduits to execute my artistic designs. From these humble beginnings Iron & Wire became a modern fabrication studio. We routinely use computer assisted technology along with traditional methods in the creation and fabrication of our artwork.
It’s been 25 years of dedicated creative work. We’ve produced many outstanding local and national projects. From commercial restaurants to residential feature staircases, fine art for the MCA and furniture for Mtv. The backbone of our work is our commitment to quality and the crew of professionals we associate with. In 1998, I opened the shop as a solo artist. Since then my in-house crew and outside resources have grown to handle any project, large or small.
As we continue our tradition in design, I see great prospects on the horizon. My passion for art and architecture are still strong. With one glance at our portfolio, you can see we’ve made quite a statement. My passion is to design and fabricate iconic work that gains its strength through the permanence of the materials we select. With this continued commitment, I know our best work is ahead of us.
