P R O C E S S
Our work happens in four stages: Consultation, Preparation, Fabrication, Installation.
Of course, we're fully CAD capable, and can provide any level of drawings from sketches to renderings to shop drawings.
M A T E R I A L S
We work in a wide variety of metals, (please see our tech page): Steel, Stainless, Copper, Bronze, Silver, Titanium, you name it. We also incorporate wood, glass or any other material as needed.
A fundamental understanding of the properties of metals gives the designer an edge before the plans are off the table. Stainless? Copper? Patinas? Powder Coat? Welding or brazing?
Decision, decisions...That's what we're here for.
T E C H N I Q U E
Fabrication is the main process used by architectural metal fabricators. What the word "fabricating" means is cutting pieces from ready stock and assembling them by welding, brazing, or some cold connection techniques. Alternatives would be casting, often used for sculpture, and machining, as in car engines and such.
Basic fabrication of steel and bronze is easy. What's hard is art, refinement, good design. The difference is not obvious to everyone, but to those with a discerning eye, God is definitely in the details. What sets us apart is that we began as artists and have remained true to the nature of artists.
Our technical experience ranges from traditional silversmithing techniques to the most modern techniques in cutting, joining and forming, including EDM, Laser, Waterjet, etc.
As important as personal skill is the vast variety of resources available to the modern studio. When all the elements line up the work reflects it. Your work. Our work.
