About

Welcome to Gearhart Ironwerks.
The compilation of work in the following portfolios is designed to give a spectrum of some of the many possibilities of custom decorative ironwork in home furnishings available at Gearhart Ironwerks. The photographs are meant to peak your imagination of what can be done, and with the quality and innovation you want. Our furnishings are finely crafted by hand and can be faux finished to your specifications. We can work with your design, that of your designer/architect, or create based on your desires. Our primary focus is furniture and lighting. We also make sculpture, garden art and decorative entry gates.
Our furnishings are constructed of iron, stainless steel, copper, bronze or aluminum. Some pieces are cut, welded and finished using modern techniques. Others eshew technology and are hand forged using the craftsmanship of blacksmithing. Often a combination of old and new technology is used to produce the furnishings. Unlike many things today, they are meant to last a lifetime.
The shop and showroom, located in Gearhart, Oregon, on the north Oregon coast, is a fully functional metalworking and blacksmithing shop with between three and five artisans working daily. Our preference is to concentrate on the quality of individual pieces rather than production. As our furniture is made to order, rarely do we duplicate a piece. Each piece is unique and hand made.
Thank you for considering Gearhart Ironwerks for your furnishings. We look forward to working with you.
John and Karen Emmerling
