Philip Brainard implements traditional blacksmithing techniques as a springboard for exploring the creative potential of forged iron.

Hand-iron shaping has always been a combination of usefulness and art. And, as in any domain involving art, there is an artistic vision of which renewal can be a challenge. For Philip, his wish for giving modern aspects to old, bridging the forgotten nobleness of the authentic cast or forged metal with contemporary architecture gives his work a distict flair.
