Our custom door handles and hardware are guaranteed to last forever. We use hand forged wrought iron because it does not corrode with exposure to the elements like other metals, and builds a patina that will only look more beautiful with age. At ArtFactory.com your options or limited only by your imagination.
When creating doors, furnishings and more with ArtFactory.com, you are not merely shopping for an item that will fit a utility, but are working with our architects, artists, and engineers to create a fine art piece, or set of pieces that help to tell the story of your personality and accomplishments. We can build a single, unique item that will serve as a centerpiece within your home, or a set of items that will create a theme within a room, or throughout your entire home. This customer wanted us to help tell the story of their family in an extraordinary way, and chose to use apple blossoms and trees to help tell this story. They began by having us created an apple blossom carved door for their front entrance, so they could give their guests a breathtaking first impression before they have even entered the house. Inside, is the true centerpiece item, a world class fine art, family tree wall panel carved by the hands of one of our master wood carvers. This high relief carved apple blossom tree features the initials of various family members carved into the tree, and is the kind of cherished heirloom that will be passed on for generations. To top off the essence of the theme, they had us create these decorative Tree Of Life magnets, which are displayed on their safe door. Even smaller items such as these decorative magnets are held to the same world class fine art items as the door and wall panel.
The Tree Of Life magnets are made from genuine wrought iron, and hand hammered into shape over a coal fired forge by our master blacksmiths. Our wrought iron door hardware products are never cast copied, drop forged, or mass produced using any type of fast process. Each is created individually, by hand, with hammer an anvil, and no two are ever made exactly alike. Furthermore, all of our wrought iron hardware products are advance patinated by hand with our proprietary, hand applied, heat infused, iron oxide patination process. This patina is heat applied at over 1000 degrees Fahrenheit so that it will bond to the molecules of the metal. What this means is is that our finishes actually become part of the metal, instead of just being sprayed or brushed on top. This makes for a finish that will stand the test of time and look better with age. Because our finishes are actually in the metal, and not just on the metal, they will never crack, flake, or fade like powder coats and paints. All of this adds up to a finish that will last forever with little or no maintenance.
Each product from ArtFactory.com is designed by and built under the supervision of award winning artist H.J. Nick. He also personally inspects, and signs each product as a work of fine art before it leaves our world class facility.
Building a family legacy has been going on since the beginning of time. Building heirloom furniture and doors intended to last forever is one of the primary ways we all have in achieving some small part of immortality. These cherished family items will touch our loved ones for many years to come through physical interactions as well as family photos. Many societies, including the Egyptians and Mayans, as well as European royalty and aristocracy have created and passed down heirlooms for thousands of years.
In fact, if it were not for these artifacts, it would be impossible to know these people ever existed, and how they were important to history. This is also the case in the 21st century within your own family. No matter if it’s a simple, hope chest with your personal message or name as a gift to a loved one, or an extravagant, fine art quality, master handcrafted, decorative Tree Of Life magnets, these items will be important to the story of your family history long after we are gone.
These custom Tree Of Life magnets, and all of our hardware products are certified, world class fine art. Not only is each piece built uniquely by the hands of one master metalsmith, but also designed by and built under the supervision of award winning artist H.J. Nick. Every product is certified with the H.J. Nick signature, thus ensuring that your product is a work of investment quality, fine art with appreciable future value.
It is our belief that when it comes to custom door hardware, you will not find a better product available anywhere at any price. That is why we use only the highest quality materials, and time tested methods of craftsmanship. Additionally, we offer our products at factory direct pricing. Not only that, but when we say made in the U.S.A. we mean it, every product is made in our Scottsdale, Arizona factory, the same way that we have done it since 1913. When nothing but the best will do, call ArtFactory.com today at 1-800-292-0008 for a quote on the custom Tree Of Life magnets, or any of our other custom, made to order hand forged hardware.
