My current work involves stretching and expanding on traditional
techniques in an effort to create modern designs with a focus on
I make sculptural, functional and architectural work and enjoy
challenging myself with each new project. My work can be found
in or around clients homes from Florida to New York to Main
Street Telluride, Colorado. I have been published in several
books including Dona Meilach's "Ironwork Today: Inside & Out"
and Matthew S. Clarke's "From Fire to Form". I have taught at
Penland School of Crafts, Peter's Valley Craft Center, John C.
Campbell Folk School and have demonstrated nationally.
I grew up in Brooklyn, NY where my education included graffiti
writing, painting, photography, poetry, film making and just
looking. I was awarded a Core Fellowship for two years at the
Penland School of Crafts in Penland, NC. I also worked in Great
Britain with Brian Russell and with Chris Topp of the Real
Wrought Iron Company.
My home is in Asheville, NC where I maintain my workshop
and live with my wife, Darrah, and our daughters, Celia Sky and
Lilliana Lir Noble.
