We're a blacksmith & mosaic artist. Husband & wife team creating sustainable, handmade works in metal, mosaic, and wood.

Our Story

Kyle and Johannah bring the ancient arts of blacksmithing and mosaics to a contemporary audience. Using handtools and early industrial equipment, we create modern designs with the timeless feel of handmade work. We also strive to create work that is sustainable. We use reclaimed, local, durable, and non-toxic materials. We place a strong emphasis on community outreach and collaboration. 

Johannah is a self-taught mosaic artist with a BA in art history. Kyle is a traditionally-trained blacksmith with a BFA in furniture design. Though we happily work independently, our favorite projects bring it all together: metal, mosaic, & wood.

Together, we are raising our two young children, along with one young pup and one old cat, in beautiful, historic Richmond, VA. When we aren't creating in the studios, we're most likely exploring the James River or digging in our backyard vegetable garden.
