About Us

The Team

First and foremost, we are a family of craftsmen and artists. We care deeply about what we build, and create our projects with care and a great deal of thought and discussion. Our members are:

MIKE RODRIGUE has been actively involved in metals fabrication for almost 50 years, having been a part of his father’s miscellaneous steel fabrication business. His technical background enables him to offer guidance in value engineering, design concepts, manufacturing processes and finishing techniques. His artistic skills enable him to see the finished product in his mind’s eye…to offer that unique product solution to discerning clientele. Mike’s experience with various metals offers an advantage in the marriage of metals to achieve the desired design effect. His adventurous spirit promotes his desire to always try new things. In working with clients, the sky is the limit! He has been admiringly called “Mr. Glitz” by one client, because of his love for shiny metals. He willingly admits that every day is a joy to him because he derives so much pleasure from his work.

BETSY RODRIGUE has been a part of the metals industry for more than 30 years. She brings her artistry of flower arranging to the art of metal work. Her sense of balance and color and her ability to listen to clients enable the finished product to be the perfect marriage of artist and owner. Quality is the key to success…Betsy’s watchful eye and concern for the client’s satisfaction assure a successful finished product.

From early in his life, KEVIN RODRIGUE was learning the finite details of the family business. While at West Virginia University, he strengthened his artistic skills with a major in ceramic arts. He was awarded a full scholarship his senior year based on his varied artistic expertise. His project was a wooden table with hand-forged steel legs, a table setting of ceramic dishes, and hand-forged brass cutlery. A six-week study trip to China intensified the oriental influence in Kevin’s ceramics and his metal work. His great sense of line fluidity and his ability to think outside the box enable him to see design solutions when difficult problems arise.

With training in interior design from WVU, CRYSTAL RODRIGUE brings varied expertise in style and color to the Team. Her experience with air brushing and faux painting enable us to broaden the finish possibilities available to our clients. Because of her educational background, she has the ability to see the finished product as it would best compliment its surroundings. As her experience with metals broadens, her innovative ideas will be a valuable source of inspiration.

After graduating Magna Cum Laude in accounting from WVU, BRIAN RODRIGUE went off to provide management consulting services to Fortune 500 companies. He brought those project management skills along wth his business acumen back to the company in 2002. His creative problem solving and organization skills help to keep projects running smoothly and his tireless work ethic help to get them complete.
