Founded in 2012, Smith Shop is a dynamic craft-centric metalworking company based in Detroit, Michigan. Smith Shop produces quality metalwork of all descriptions specializing in the custom fabrication of gold, silver, copper, brass and steel while also producing limited-production wholesale runs ranging from jewelry to architectural hardware. In addition to its manufacturing business, Smith Shop offers access to its metalworking facilities at Ponyride (a noted Detroit creative entrepreneurial space) through classes, workshops, private lessons and studio rentals. Smith Shop's founders have exhibited their metalwork nationally and internationally in such prominent venues as the Renwick Gallery of Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C., the Bellevue Arts Museum in Bellevue, Washington, The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft in Houston, Texas and Galerie Marzee in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Smith Shop is Kate Bordine, Gabriel Craig and Amy Weiks.
