Jack Brubaker
Jack Brubaker has been a full-time artist-blacksmith since 1970. He has exhibited extensively in North America and in Europe. Jack has demonstrated for both the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America (ABANA) and the British Artist Blacksmith Association (BABA), He has presented a slide lecture on his work at the First World Congress of Artist Blacksmiths in Aachen, Germany. In 1984 he served ABANA as president and has been on the boards of various national and local arts organizations. His kinetic sculpture was included in the Friedrichshafen Exhibition of Forged Sculpture in Germany. Jack's work is in many collections, including those of Joseph Hirshhorn, Ali McGraw and others.

Jack holds BFA and MFA degrees in art from Syracuse and Indiana Universities where he studied painting, printmaking, photography and art history. As a child he studied at The Art Institute of Chicago. However, his most important education came from within his family. He began studying oil painting and drawing at the age of five with his grandmother, Mary Brubaker, a respected Chicago painter. His great-aunt Edith Keith was a bowl turner and painter, and his aunt Miriam McGrew was a painter and silversmith. Jack grew up in his grandfather's and father's wood and metal shops, watching them create useful objects that grew out of a basic belief that they could invent and build better goods than were available in stores. Their interest in designing new ways of doing things continues in Jack's forge where he builds many of his own tools and machines.


Metal Choice & Cup's Color Choice: (click to see the sample)
All candleholders are available in black, pewter or bronze finishes. The lily cup insert for your candleholder can be one of twelve different colors. Please indicate when you order which finish and color you would like.

Metal Choice (Finishes )
Bronze pieces are forged from a high-quality marine-grade bronze. Solid bronze which we polish to give the surface highlights that sparkle gold. This bronze will mellow but won't turn blue or green. These pieces can even be kept outdoors! A light scrubbing with 60 grit sandpaper or scotchbrite pad every 2 or 3 years refurbishes the highlights.

Pewter pieces are forged steel that has most of the black removed, leaving a look that combines subtle silver highlights with the black and grey present in natural steel. A clear finish is sprayed on to prevent rust and makes for easy cleaning.

Black pieces are forged from steel, then powder coated black in our own powder coating room. This finish is extremely resistant to rust and is easy to clean and maintain.
