It's that time of the year again!

The invitation to ROCKITECTURE 2013 is beautiful, as always, and we have decided yet again to donate a hand-made piece for the silent auction in support of our wonderful Architecture Center.  Custom designed by Izabela Wojcik of Potter Art Metal Studios, and hand forged by the artisans of Potter Art Metal Studios, this adorable wrought iron writing utensil stand will add whimsy to the desk of the winner of this one of a kind piece.   Design details: rose and leaf.   Donated by Richard Potter of Potter Art Metal Studios.

ROCKITECTURE 2013 is benefitting the Dallas Center for Architecture and guests will join some of the top designers, architects, builders, photographers, and just about anyone else who simply loves architecture.

An evening of great design in the stunning and recently restored Federal Building and Post Office, including Judge Sarah T. Hughes' historic courtroom, will be a hit for sure!  It will be a night of stylish cocktails, bites, tunes, and a silent auction especially curated for lovers of great design and architecture donated by us and other local and national designers, artists, and architects.

Hope to see you there!

Rustic Pine Cone and Needle Fireplace Screen

The things we can do with metal... it's just incredible.  I designed this custom, wrought iron, fireplace screen for one of my favorite clients; she's just so sweet.  I matched the screen to a pine cone and needle fandelier we hand forged for her a few years ago, and I am absolutely in love with it!
The pine cones, the needles, the texture on the stems... it all just looks so real, and everything is scrolled in such an artistic way; it's exactly what I had in my mind when I drew it.  Our metalworkers simply rock!

If you are looking for ornamental metalwork for a cabin, a lodge, or just your lake house, a design like this one would fit right in.  We custom design and make fireplace screens and tools, table bases, railings, chandeliers and fandeliers, vent-a-hood covers, and just about anything else you can think in metal.  Drop on by our Dallas showroom, and I'll be happy to design something just for you.  We are located right next to the Dallas Design District, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding us.
