If you've been wondering where that epic wall sculpture in Lot 24's main lobby came from, you're in luck, because today we're talking all about local treasure Red Star Ironworks. This unique company offers its services in both the U.S. and Mexico with handcrafted architectural and sculptural creations that bring life into any space they inhabit. We were lucky enough to have original work by Red Star Ironworks mounted in our lobby.
Located in a former industrial neighborhood, Lot 24 is situated on a plot of land that once housed a foundry. Paying homage to our community's past, the wall art features gears, cogs, and wheels ornately displayed into a true masterpiece.
Red Star is responsible for the entire creative operation behind all their pieces. They start from an iterative design process, and once the design is complete and approved, their team begins the long task of electronically mapping their plan to ensure the best quality results. From there, the fun begins, as they start to weld their stunning and impressive works of art.
Most recently, Red Star designed and forged a stained-glass gate for a driveway in the Laurel Highlands region of western PA, bringing a majestic feeling of natural beauty to an already gorgeous destination. They have also designed stunning light fixtures for private homes, unique staircase railings, elegant tools for fireplaces, and one-of-a-kind coffee and dining tables. Their portfolio is available on their website, as is a store where you can purchase your very own Red Star original.
