About Iron Design Company

Iron Design Company was established to promote modern designs in hand formed iron
objects by metal worker: Marc Maiorana. Marc learned blacksmithing from his father and earned a BFA in Metalsmithing from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. He was a
resident artist at the Penland School of Crafts (NC) and has taught at numerous institutions
including Marywood University (PA), Peters Valley Craft Center (NJ), Penland School of Crafts (NC), and Haystack School of Crafts (ME). Marc has exhibited at the National Ornamental Metals Museum (TN) and Kentucky and Mobile (AL) Museums of Art, has been published in five Schiffer books of contemporary metalwork, and featured in Audi, American Craft, Gourmet, Dwell, Food and Wine, The Washington Post and The New York Times. Recently Marc's ironwork was featured on the DIY Network TV Show: Man Caves, and will be exhibited and permanently acquired by the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Gallery
