Who We Are
Matthew and Karine Maynard are designers, blacksmiths and artists who use metal and architectural space as their media. As a husband and wife team, they specialize in hand-forged custom stair rails, furniture and applied design. Their work has been featured in international books & periodicals as one of the leading architectural artist blacksmiths teams in the world today. Their designs have been given prominence & awards by both the National Ornamental & Misc. Metals Association and the Artist Blacksmiths Association of North America. Their large railing commissions reside in homes and businesses from California to Italy. Smaller works are represented & sold by select galleries.
Each element of their work reflects their professional attention to aesthetic detail, design and function with a focus on quality over quantity.
"We work closely with our clients throughout the design process and look forward to collaborating with them and creating something that will last for generations to come".
