Our custom metal house numbers are cut from sheets of high-grade stainless steel. They measure 4.5 inches by 11 inches with 3-inch tall numbers offset to the right for a modern look.
Terran Marks, the owner, makes a variety of different decorative wall hooks by hand. One of his most popular styles is the 2-inch wide oar hook. Customers from around the world rely on his hooks to hold up their antique oars and boat paddles (not to mention a jet tailhook for a couple in California).
From fire pokers to box hinges to door handles, all of the hardware from the shop has a distinct, rustic look. Each piece is buffed, smoothed, and sealed against moisture, but they all have that hammered, fresh from the forge look.
Large Riveted Wall Brackets
These wall brackets were commissioned in 2012 by a customer in North Carolina for her mountain cabin. Forged and riveted to make a matching set of 12.
The calling card of the forge! Terran has been forging hooks by hand from the beginning way back in 2011. Available in all different sizes and finishes to suit your home decor.
