About Rob Key Design
For over 20 years, architectural iron artist, Rob Key, has worked with every type of metal imaginable. Rob's work blends the elements of stout construction from his aviation background with an artistic passion for rich beauty, and he captures it all in each and every enduring hand-forged iron design. This combination undoubtedly makes Rob Key Designs the best and only choice for iron doors and railing.
Born and raised in Oklahoma, Rob was first introduced to iron welding while overhauling turbine engine parts for his father's aviation business. Rob quickly grew experienced handling every type of exotic metal needed to repair turbine engines and became a TIG welder certified by the FAA.
Eventually Rob owned his own successful FAA repair station for five years, where he was called on to work on any and every part capable of holding an airplane together.
After the tragic events of 9-11 and its toll on the airline industry, Rob explored a new facet of ironwork and became associated with an ornamental iron company in Florida where Rob's respect for the strength of iron blended with the potential beauty and artistry of iron design.
Rob began sketching iron designs and discovered he loved art. "I loved the freedom of it," he said. "Suddenly I wasn't repairing something; I was creating something. And If I could conceive it, I could make it."
His love of art and his ability is seen not only in the beautiful and elegant iron doors and railings he designs but also in his sculptures and art work.
