Hardware by Philip Brainard is truly custom. Each piece is created for the customer. The customer collaborates with him, orders it, and then itʼs created. If the customer does not know what they want, he provides examples for them. Or, he creates what the customer sees in their minds eye as beautifully as possible. Just as the old smith stood at the village crossroads and lled the needs of each person, so Philip stands ready to serve your needs with skill and pride. Philip Brainard employs traditional techniques and is capable of producing an almost limitless variety of decorative and functional hardware. Phil is able to manage all aspects of manufacturing, engineering, pattern making, casting, machining, chasing, plating, and finishing.
