At Mudge Metalcraft , we are all committed to making your job our first priority, and to do your work to the highest industry standards.

Jay Mudge started in the ornamental metal field in 1978 with a well established structural and ornamental fabricator. I started as a private subcontractor to do installations. Then I moved into the office in 1980 and was in charge of all residential custom design, fabrication, and installation. I worked my way up to become the Sales Manager of the Ornamental department there. In 2000 I decided to start my own business and opened up my own fabrication shop. Since that time I have had an opportunity to design and fabricate many unusual and interesting jobs. I have sent my artistic designs to Michigan (cluster of roses); Tennessee (elk head left & right, copper & bronze reposee), Wyoming (copper rail for a spiral stair), Iowa (custom rail and spiral stair), Barbados (Sandy Lane hotel rail samples).
