Meet Ben Johnston

With over a decade and a half of blacksmithing experience, Benjamin(Ben) Johnston, an Alabama native, is driven and passionate about his work. His art is best described as organic because he sculpts everything by hand. Every curve, every arc, every piece is unique—no two are alike. Ben pulls from old-school forging styles and combines them with new-school modern fabrication techniques.

He’s comfortable using many types of metal: iron, copper, stainless steel, and even silver. So, whether you’re in the market for a custom deck railing, a wrought iron entrance gate, or a hand forged iron wedding trellis, Ben will create a product with expert craftsmanship, thought, and passion.
