Your personal 
Artist Blacksmith

Celeste Flores is a blacksmith in demand

Hire me for your home or business.

I work professionally with many clients in the Bay Area doing custom architectural and sculptural work.  


I work in iron, steel, stainless steel, bronze, brass and aluminium. I also work as faculty at The Crucible, teaching youth and adults the art of blacksmithing: squishing steel with a hammer and heat.

I am available for:

sculptures, furniture, railings, frames, gates, shelving and almost anything else you can imagine in metal.


All projects considered.

A sampling of my work

Timeless Design. Built for your life.

I work closely with clients to create a shared vision.

I enjoy the process of collaboration to create a design that will last for ages. Especially if it's bronze.  Bronze lasts a LONG time.

Private residence in Berkeley

A recently remodeled home in Berkeley requested a rail for their porch that would blend naturally to their garden.

Vitreous Table

Commission for Andrew MacAleavy

This table was designed for a good friend who allowed me complete creative license.
I love the combination of organic and strongly geometric, while Andrew loves the beauty and translucence of glass
