Creative Metalworkers

Metalwork by local artisans elevates the style quotient indoors and out

Creative Metalworkers - LIGHT SHOW Collaborating with Carib Daniel Martin Architecture + Design, Gutierrez Studios fabricated and installed a three-story, wood-and-steel staircase in a Wesley Heights home.

POINT OF INTEREST Steve Prudhomme of Metal Specialties, Inc. (540-967-4836), fabricated a sleek, hot-rolled-steel fireplace surround for an Alexandria penthouse during a renovation by Runningdog Architects. Conceived by interior designer Katie Otis, the fireplace anchors the long room, adding vertical interest to the space.

SEASIDE STYLE Pennsylvania-based Compass Ironworks was hired to design, fabricate and install a third-floor exterior stair on a Jersey Shore condo. The result was a sleek, high-grade aluminum spiral stair, powder-coated in an eco-friendly finish to withstand the harsh oceanfront environment. compassironworks.com

TOUCH OF GLAM Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey of SCW Interiors tapped AK Metal Fabricators, Inc., to create a shelf system in a glamorous scullery she was designing for clients in Alexandria. A stainless-steel frame in a mirror finish supports tempered-glass shelves; the system complements a backsplash of antiqued-mirror panels. akmetalfab.com

BACK TO NATURE During the overhaul of a wooded property in Great Falls, Cardine Studios was commissioned to design and fabricate a steel railing leading to the home’s side entrance. Its graceful leaves and branches reflect the setting; they were handcrafted using traditional forging techniques.
