Jean-Pierre Masbanji is a master craftsman and a true artist .We hired him to make a beautiful iron and glass door for our home in Montecito, California. His work is of the finest quality and I highly recommend him.

I have had the pleasure over the years to create beautiful work in iron with Jean Pierre, and he is certainly one of the best wrought iron artisan I have worked with. He doesn’t only assemble….

Jean Pierre created beautiful Iron rails for our front stoop that mimicked the sweep of our steeps. Our house is an antique French Tudor, and Jean Pierre is an artist who was able to capture the style and flavor of the era in his iron works artistry.
