Patrick first started bending metal into “Functional Art” in 1992 while working as a welder in his home town of Des Moines, IA. It didn’t take long for his hobby to draw the eye of the owner at the hip Asian restaurant where he was a bartender in the evenings, resulting in his first “real” job designing and fabricating 30 tables for their new dining room – not a bad start for someone with no art or design degree.

“THE HUMAN HAND IS INCAPABLE
OF MAKING AN EXACT COPY”
At the Iron Chinchilla, we pride ourselves in delivering a handmade, one of a kind product that becomes an instant conversation piece. Using little more than a bench vise and varying lengths of pipe we affectionately call “cheater bars”, we cold bend and shape each piece at the work table. With more than 20 years of welding experience, you can be sure that each piece we create will stand the test of time!
