FIFE METAL WORKS
Established in 2015 by John and Katharine Fife, Fife Metal Works is a metal fabrication shop specializing in custom architectural steel and wood work. Whether commercial or residential, our team brings a strong attention to detail, high quality craftsmanship and custom solutions for projects both large and small. We love a challenge and approach each project with a personal touch, working closely with you on material selection, finish and installation detail.
A Droese Raney Architecture project, we had the opportunity to build custom steel windows and doors, a plate steel and rolled channel bar and tig welded rolled hanging racks with hidden LEDs and acrylic rod channels, custom light fixtures and steel wrapped cabinets.
Designed by Lance Raney of Droese Raney Architecture, we were commissioned to create custom corten formed crosses that were inlaid in the brick façade, along with a 75’ corten weathering steel planter box surrounding the perimeter of the exterior patio. We also made white formed steel wrapped wood table tops, steel table bases and a hostess stand to finish out the project.
We developed CNC cut steel walls with wrapped columns, curbs and doors. We made a plate steel and I-beam table and signage to outfit their new offices.
We created a 14” custom corten steel planter for their new office.
We were selected by Sebastien Leon on this project for the Dallas Soluna Art Festival. Inspired by the rib cage of a whale, this piece featured 10-16’ tall bent and rolled steel pipes, bent to the shape of the animal. The hollow steel tubes were then wired with speakers to play an instrumental piece by the Dallas Symphony and was featured in NorthPark Mall in 2018.
