Welcome to the shop, studio, office and gallery at the new 2012 Spackman Lane location in Exton PA. After 10 years at the Bacton Hill Rd. shop, it was time for a move, and a fresh new beginning to reflect the new inspirations and directions that the work has taken.

Now, with 30% more space there is room for a new gallery to house artworks… study… and find inspiration. More floor space and better natural lighting in the shop and studio has resulted in a much better atmosphere to create in as well.

This is where I'll invite you to begin the process of commissioning a new work, or continuing an existing piece. With a new complement of tooling acquired over the last few years everything is now in place. The new shop space is outfitted with everything needed to complete every type of gate, railing, sculpture or custom sheet application imaginable.

Facilities are also in place to accommodate larger scale works as well as cross-country delivery. I'm also happy to accept deliveries of countertops, cupolas, or architectural components for cladding.

Testimonials: As this new website grows, I'm hoping to add testimonials from satisfied clients and customers for your review. Please stop by regularly to check on the progress. Until then, feel free to contact me at any time for a complete list of references and referrals regarding any of the services that I have to offer.

"We had a problem with a flat roof tied into a skylight system. 25 years of a leaky situation. John solved our problem with a copper roof and the associated skylight work. A complicated project entailing design, carpentry, masonry work, glass and copper work. John handled each aspect of the job. The result: a beautiful and practical success. Working with John is a joy. He combines the artistic integrity of his craft with the functional solution to the job and he stands behind the result."

Dear John,
It's been two weeks since you installed our copper hood and we couldn't be happier with it. You truly did a fantastic job. Every little detail on it shows how very much you enjoy your craft. I've shown it to all of my neighbor friends and in a couple of weeks it will be unveiling time for the family. I know they will love it as much as we do- well- almost.

Thank you John for being so articulate and for being such a nice young man. You're a rare breed in this day and age.

Dear John,
Over the years, your name has become synonymous with the word copper. I am sure it took a lot of hard work and perseverance, but it paid off.
I've always recommended your name with confidence and you have never let me down. Don't ever lose that quality, it will take you a long way.
