Shafer Hood

Wood, Steel, Patina
48" x 36" x 18"

This beautiful hood was patterned on the Winery doors I did earlier (shown elsewhere on this site). Here it is shown finished, at home, in its new home in New Jersey. This decorative hood covers a functional one (made by others). The designer had specified some terrific hardware and lighting, and wanted a hood that […]

Crane Hood

Crane Hood
Brass, Bronze, Copper, Patina
48" x 28" x 18"

Every home, modest or fancy, can have a hand made custom range hood. Just imagine one. It;s not out of reach. Bronze and copper. And the client;s desire for a shape like that. What shape do you want?

Bacome Pot Rack

Bacome Pot Rack
6' x 3' x 6'

This beautiful pot rack not only holds pots, it is a chandelier. Look close and you can see the lighting. The old blending perfectly with the new. I wish I could have played all these pots like bells. The world is a bell rack waiting to be rung. Gravity is as gravity does. All good […]

Mitchel Island

Brass, Copper, Patina

Making my custom hammered bronze, brass, and copper counter tops is always a welcome change of pace from my stone work. I enjoy both, and both are valuable parts of my existence. Thanks in advance for ordering one. The material will outlast any of our great grandchildren, and is easy to maintain. The proof goes […]

Edwards Hood

Edwards Hood
5' x 4' x 3'
Stainless Steel, Sheet brass, Cast Bronze

I have worked with a machinist/metalmaster for many years now. we have done several hoods together. I design them, do the finish work, any casting that may be involved, and install them, and Mark does the fabrication in his shop. We make a good team. These cast bronze elements serve no purpose, but they look […]

Havens Sink


This granite sink was a hoot to make and install. Not easy, but very cool. Check out the fit around the drains… baby, we aim to please.

Herbstreet Hood

Herbstreet Hood
Brass, Copper, Wood, Patina
42" x 42" x 22"

A beautifully made decorative hood is a custom addition to a kitchen unmatched by anything commercially available. Every nail is hand hammered and pre-drilled by hand. This is the real deal, the most custom metal kitchen hood you can get.

Edwards Vanity

Original Design by Dale Johnson
Granite, Bronze, Copper, Glass

Inside this metal cabinet is a light that illuminates the glass bowl. One of the panels is also hinged for access.

Perry Fireplaces

Designed by architect Michael Hasara
Brass, Bronze, Glass, Wood

This is a team project at its best. The carpenter that built the forms, the electrician that wired them, the architect… me and my crew… it’s been almost twenty years, but I still remember this project distinctly. What a challenge! There are no visible fasteners on either fireplace. I had to crawl out from inside […]

Patton Hood

Patton Hood
Brass, Copper, Wood
4' x 3' x 2'

It might not seem obvious, but there are many shared qualities between stone and metals. Forever, or the human folly  and facsimile. is a shared trait. My decorative copper, bronze, and brass hoods are all made by me, and are all 100% non-combustible compliant. There are no commercially available comparisons.

Rubel Hood

Hammered Bronze and Copper 
36" x 16" x 36"

This hand-hammered hood is all about being perfectly 100% hand made. Solid brass and copper, the maintenance is negligible, and with little effort will last longer than the house. I love that this kind of effort is in a normal kitchen, not out of reach at all of the average home owner. It’s just that […]

Granite Vanity

Original Design by Dale Johnson
Granite, Glass, Stainless Steel

This granite and glass sink is a collaboration with architect Gary Bruck of Sullivant Bruck Architects for their office restroom.   I swear this is the coolest commercial bathroom sink ever.    

Hatfield Island

Hatfield Island 
Brass, Copper, Copper Nails, Patina
7' x 3'-6" x 1 1/2"

Hammered copper and brass have a long history as counter top materials, and the hand craftsmanship associated with them has been long been deservedly established. I hope that in the decade or more since i made this island that every Thanksgiving that has gathered at this island has seen the family stronger and wiser and […]

Havens Vanity

Original design by Dale Johnson
Copper, Granite

Soldering all these seems was a challenge. I was never called back, so I guess it held.

Hoyt-Criner Hood

hoyt-criner hood 16

Often functioning hoods are not aesthetically pleasing, and one good way of handling it is to wrap the functioning hood with a decorative one. The fan and duct work are all hidden behind the hammered brass and copper hood. Maintenance is simple, and copper and brass are known to last for thousands of years.

Kohman Hood

Kohman Hood
Brass, Copper, Patina
42" x 36" x 23"

I have been making decorative metal hoods for years, and I am always struck by how my hand made work contrasts with the commercially available product. No wonder I’m not rich… each of them take time.   Hammered copper goes way back. It lasts through all circumstances, for hundreds of years. An occasional wipe with […]

Murphy Bar

Murphy Bar

I came and I left and the bar was in and then I was done. Bummer that the rest of the scene is something we both have to imagine. I’m sure that by the time the couple was finished their bar was a thing of beauty.

Stonehenge Bar

Copper, Patina

One of my first copper clad countertops. I’ve done many since. I like to do the metal work, but my elbows are getting tired of it. It has always been difficult to convey the depth of the color tone in photos. This is not bad, but in person there is even more richness of color […]

Perry Floor Inlay

Patinated Bronze, Etching

This inlaid etched bronze plaque is the client’s idea of humor- a Medusa blowing at the viewer. This is located in the guest bathroom in front of the commode.

Rubin Faucet

Kansas Limestone, Cast Bronze, Antique Faucet

This faucet ended up over a bar. Another project I didn’t get to see the completion of. I have a rather large selection of old wood masters that I have taken molds of and can cast in metal. The bronze frame around this plaque is reproducable in any size.
