Christopher's expertise also extends to heirloom-quality architectural lighting, including hand-forged wrought iron furniture, lamps, chandeliers, sconces, pendant lights, and walkway lanterns.

His collection of home accessories features elegant forged iron fireplace tools, luxurious candlestick holders, coat racks, and more. With a wealth of experience in architectural ironworks, he skillfully undertakes custom iron projects. Christopher's distinctive, award-winning transitional iron artworks are showcased at his onsite gallery and sculpture garden, located northeast of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Improvised Abstract


As a metal sculpture artist, Christopher's creative process is deeply connected to his improvised flute music and his time spent kayaking down the rivers of the Southwest.

His award winning steel sculptures have been featured in galleries from New York City to Los Angeles.

Christopher's Improvised Flute Music

"I improvise flute music to interact with magical places--music forging a middle way between emotions too subtle to capture in words and their final expression in metal. My collectors and customers see all of this in my work, though to me it still remains a mystery."

Blacksmith, Christopher Thomson, playing the flute.
