Atlanta-based Andrew Crawford's foundry is an exciting cacophony of loud clangs, fire, heavy metal music and art - from bathtubs he creates gin bottles and from steel and fire he makes guns and valentines. After graduating from Rhode Island School of Design in 1993, Crawford opened his workshop and studio, the Andrew T Crawford Ironworks, with the goal of creating functional objects with an emphasis on blacksmithing. Crawford’s public work can be seen at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Federal Reserve Bank, as well as schools and businesses. His work is sought after and collected by many public, private and museum collectors.
