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.
Blacksmith Patrick McNamee
Detailed anvil work
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.
