Bespoke Metalwork

As a commissioning workshop we produce functional and sculptural metal pieces. We can cast in bronze or fabricate in brass, steels, aluminium and glass. We have created custom hinges, door handles, rails and hooks for tapestries, mat wells and bespoke fixtures and fittings. We can offer our metal working skills, in brass, copper, bronze, aluminium, stainless steel, mild, and weathering steel. We can provide different finishing options from polishing, brushing, patination, waxing, oiling, lacquering and powder coating.

Case Studies

The National Gallery of Ireland

The Begging Bowl Donation Box When the new wing of NGI was opened in Clare St. it was important ensure a stream of income for the Gallery, so we were asked to produce a design to encourage donations. The begging bowl was a series of copper dishes on brass rods which could be twirled by visitors to encourage coins to bounce from bowl to bowl. This set up was encased in silicon acrylic with a security collection box at the bottom. It proved to be very popular with visitors.

The National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny

In 2020 the curator of NCGI in response to Covid-19, ordered a set of glazed aluminium display cases for artworks to be set on the lawn of the castle yard. These cases are pegged and spiked into the ground for stability and are sealed against rain. The art work shown in our photo is by artist Rachel Doolin.

Russborough House

In 2018, we were asked to produce a rail, bracket, chain and hook system to hang the famous Beit Collection of paintings including Vermeer and Rembrandt in Wicklow's’ historic stately home. These fixtures in brass allowed for the hanging of artworks, taking into consideration, flexibility and not having to fix through the velvet lined walls.
