Crawford Ironworks

Crawford Ironworks was founded in 1993 by Atlanta artist Andrew Crawford. Working with a team of experienced craftsmen, Andrew uses metal to create functional objects, sculptures, gates and fine art for both public display and private commission.

Andrew has gained recognition for his ornamental iron gates. Each gate usually takes about 3 weeks to create. Andrew says it’s a time consuming process but very rewarding. Andrew also creates fine art for display in galleries.

He says as he’s grown older he’s learned to not compartmentalize his work and take pride in the variety of projects his team produces.
