Commissions and Sculptures


Melissa works to commission for private and public clients making elegant decorative ironwork and sculpture for site-specific locations.

Working closely with her clients, Melissa will start with sketch ideas and scale drawings to create beautiful pieces of ornamental ironwork or sculptures that last a lifetime.

More information on the commissioning process and the journey of the Octopus Candelabra commission can be found on her blog.



Melissa creates new sculpture between commissions and her teaching days.

Her sculpture work has a playful quality and engages the viewer with the lines and shapes flowing from the hammer work.

Sculptures can be seen at Melissa's forge or in exhibitions around the country.  Please get in touch to make an appointment to visit the forge.
