 About McNamee Studios

 
McNamee Studios is a custom blacksmithing studio specializing in hand forged furniture. All of the work done at McNamee Studios is one of a kind, designed by artist and owner, Patrick McNamee, who has been producing hand forged metalwork for over 17 years.


Master Blacksmith Patrick McNamee


Detailed anvil work

Patrick McNamee earned a Bachelor of
Fine Arts degree from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1990 where he studied the art of metal forming. Upon earning his degree, he accepted a traditional apprenticeship for three years with Valerius Blacksmithing in Chicago, Illinois, under Master Blacksmith, William Valerius. While working with Valerius, McNamee learned the traditional ways and techniques of the blacksmith. At the end of his apprenticeship, Patrick returned to Virginia to open his own studio, now based in Midlothian, Virginia.

It is our belief, that it takes the best tools, the best material, and above all the best artisans to produce work of the highest quality and enduring design.
