We celebrate tradition: doing things by hand, creating beautiful things that take time in an age when time is a precious commodity. Today we honor the traditions and talent of the American ironwork artisans we work with every day.
Their skills and processes have been passed down through generations with each craftsman honing their talents and putting their own signature on their work as they handcraft each metal art piece. That is what we love. We love the personality of each artisan coming across as they craft every element for our fire screens, as well as the personal touch they provide.
Each fireplace screen we build starts its life off as raw pieces of steel. It can take as many as three artisans as long as 15-25 hours to make one handmade fireplace screen: manipulating the metal to turn something banal into something beautiful. To watch each detail being handcrafted with a combination of heat, strength, grit and imagination is truly the magic our American ironwork team brings to every single piece. Our team of expert metal artisans have a combined experience of more than 100 years, and it comes across in how they use traditional practices to bring a fresh flair to every element of the piece.
As Thanksgiving approaches in a year of so much change in our country, it has really had us reflecting on all of the things to be thankful for and the privilege of being an American craftsman for our customers is right up there. Handmade is, and will remain, the cornerstone of our business. From ideation to creation, we work together with both our team of artists and artisans to hone each small detail for a piece as it’s crafted in our ironwork facilities here in Dallas.
So thanks to you – our customers and fans – for supporting our company and the talented, hard-working American artisans we work with to bring your one-of-a-kind custom fire screens to life!
“We love participating in the preservation of the tradition of handmade metal artistry and creating pieces that bring delight to those who live with them. ”
