How to Create Your Iron Masterpiece

It's easy to get started on the creation of your custom iron masterpiece.  This is generally what will happen.

Pick up the phone and call me at 602 509-1543 or email me at

We'll schedule an appointment when I can visit your location so we can discuss your project.  Feel free to have pictures or drawings of ideas you like.

Since most monkeys draw better than me I will usually make a few sample pieces for you to see and touch (the texture of the iron is an important part of the work and very hard for even a good sketch artist to draw).

After you decide on the design of the project I will give you a price for the project.  Once you give me the OK I'll give you an estimated completion date.  A deposit is required for most projects.

For large or complicated projects I will make periodic visits to show you the work and get your approval on any design issues we left to be decided as the project progresses.  Important note:  Do not be shy if you like what I'm doing then great!  If you are not 100% happy please let me know.  I'm proud of my work but you are the boss.  All reasonable requests will be incorporated into your project usually at no additional charge.  Less than reasonable requests may be incorporated but we may need to revisit the price thingy.

That's it in a nutshell.  I look forward to working with you.
