FIRE IS A TOOL®

David Browne is a San Diego based Architectural and Sculptural Blacksmith.

I opened David Browne Metal Design in 2002 with the mission of providing high quality forged metalwork with a strong emphasis on creativity and design. In the 12+ years since it's inception, DBMD has built a solid reputation as one of the premier artistic metalworking studios in San Diego. Our clients range from discerning homeowners, contractors and architects to small businesses and corporate institutions seeking unique branding materials and public art.

"As an Artist, my work is centered on the exploration of the plastic nature of steel when combined with the transformative properties of fire. Deeply rooted in traditional craft and industrial forging techniques, my work is informed by a love of primitive structures, architecture and my early work in ceramics."
