Want something custom? We are happy to help!

We are in the very early stages, and at this point can accept commissions for small-medium scale aluminum work and wood work. Twice per year we can accept bronze and iron sculptures as well.<br /> In the next year, we will be have the means to accept commission work to be made in a wide array in materials including cast iron, aluminum, steel, wood, and bronze.
