My website highlights some interesting projects I have made over the years. Working on a commission basis, I combine my interest in material, form, and process with a client’s tastes as well as the architectural considerations of where a finished piece will live.
Through client design collaboration, a relationship is developed around the project resulting in a very unique product. The client gains an understanding of the ways in which iron is worked and the possibilities that can be explored; I gain insight through articulating the process.
In addition to custom work I also do repairs, restorations, and fabrication of hardware, brackets, frames, and more. In other words, whatever you are looking to have made or fixed, don’t hesitate to reach out.
With a background in construction, Andy’s focus turned to architectural ironwork in 2003. Since then he has been creating window grills, gates, railings, and sculptural ironwork in and around Philadelphia. Andy is mostly self-taught, however he has studied with and alongside other metals artists at John C. Campbell, Peters Valley School of Craft, Penland School of Crafts, and Tunnel Mill Crafts. He has exhibited work at Gush Gallery and The Sculpture Gym in Philadelphia and has conducted workshops in various craft fairs in the region. Andy is also a featured artist in the recently released book, Ironwork Today 4: Inside & Out (Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.)
