ARCHITECTURAL METALWORK

When Stephen and I started our business, we began working with architects who were looking for artistic, high quality, traditional and non-traditional ironwork. These collaborations proved to be the beginning of a successful partnership that secured our position in the world of decorative, architectural, and fine art wrought ironwork . During this period we centered on the heavy forging of steel and the use of its plasticity to model the forms much like clay.

 

THE EARLY DAYS OF

METALSMITH

MICHAEL BONDI

When I started my own architectural design shop in the mid 80s , I began developing more non-traditional work within the ironwork genre. I was drawn to the European Art Deco and Arts and Crafts movements and began to explore the use of textured material in contrast to smooth surfaces. I also incorporated non-ferrous metals such as copper, bronze and monel to introduce contrast in color. In continuing development of my work, I have introduced machined metal parts and geometric shapes in contrast to forged surfaces. I have been involved in a dialogue between art, craft, architecture and function for 40 years. My work is focused on wrought metals (blacksmithing) as an artistic expression for ornamentation in architecture with the challenge of combining artistic creativity within the confines of architecture, form and function.
