Jesse Bushey and his brother Aaron Bushey have transformed the salvaged steel ropes into statement pieces. Both brothers were introduced to blacksmithing in their home state of Vermont. They took separate paths to learn the trade, pursuing lessons from expert smiths across the US and Europe. In 2010, Jesse and a partner struck out on their forming Striker Forge. When Aaron arrived in California in 2012, he joined the team at Striker Forge and in 2017 they created Bushey Ironworks.
The Busheys worked on significant projects such as the Four Seasons hotel in Aman, Jordan, to the multitude of Tahoe houses they have adorned with a wide array of ironwork styles. Architects and designers seek out Bushey Ironworks for their ability to manipulate steel into something that is both functional and beautiful. Jesse and Aaron recently put their blacksmithing art to the test in the Austin Blacksmithing Contest, where they took first place. Their innovative designs are diverse and perfectly detailed.
