Exotic Finishes and Hand Bent Work

Today, ornamental iron work is more affordable than ever.  It's also more beautiful than ever.  Due to the availability of pre-cast / pre-made components, some kind of wrought iron or ornamental iron is affordable to most move-up home buyers.  We do a tremendous amount of work for budget minded clients and builders but it's noteworthy that much of our work is for high-end projects requiring skills that are considered "antiquated" in this day and age.  Included in thse skills and specialties are; 
  • Hand bent / hand forged capabilities for one-of-a-kind pieces
  • Thousands of powdercoating colors and textures 
  • Ancient, hand-applied finishes and techniques used by metalsmiths for centuries
  • Techniques that "age" metalwork to rustic and weathered finishes
  • Acid bathing techniques that impart varying shades of patina
  • Historic restoration capabilities and experience

While we work with and enjoy relationships with many decorators, architects, builders and designers, Old World Iron recommends Brent Gibson Classic Home Design for home designs and floor plans.
