Jefferson Mack

In our San Francisco blacksmith workshop, Jefferson Mack (yes, that’s his real name) and our design team, hand-forge ornamental, architectural elements in mild steel, wrought iron and bronze. We pride ourselves on the quality and beauty of all of our work, and the range of items we produce: including stunning driveway gates, garden gates, grand stair railings; striking handrails and guardrails; beautiful iron furniture, chandeliers, and fireplace tools; and handsome door and cabinet hardware. In addition to architectural elements, Jefferson Mack Metal features lines of furniture, lighting, fire and hearth accessories, as well as custom commissioned works.


We love to work with homeowners to create a collection of ironwork expressing their unique style and taste in a unified collection. The result is a family of hardware and architectural elements that add a cohesive beauty and elegance to the home.


The artisans at Jefferson Mack Metal combine traditional blacksmith techniques, perfected over hundreds of years of experimentation and development, with modern forms and methods to produce beautifully distinct pieces of functional art. Each piece is forged at temperatures in excess of 2000˚ and hammered by hand. Pliable when glowing hot, the iron is shaped into graceful, flowing forms. In our world of high technology, there is a distinct place for organic forms and hand-wrought metal design elements.


Whatever your vision or imagination can create, if we can sketch it, we can translate it into an extraordinary, fine quality piece of metalwork.


Jefferson Mack Metal offers a variety of lines, including:

  • mixed-material tables and desks
  • custom landscape details
  • occasional seating
  • balconies

We embrace the craft of blacksmithing in a way that honors tradition while speaking the language of contemporary form and design. The result? Extraordinary artisanship, never limited by fashion or trend, that sets a tone, makes a statement and delights the senses.
