Exclusive Wrought-Iron Armature

As noted in our Christmas issue, we are making available hand-wrought iron armatures for holiday arrangements. The armatures are made in America by Pennsylvania blacksmith David J. Krzeminski, who operates his own forge outside of Pittsburgh.

You can download the recipes by clicking here.  [MORE]
