J-N-L Wrought Iron, Inc. was established in 1985 by Jim & Nedra Lemke to create a wrought iron product of old world quality, designed and built to last for generations to come. Since then, we have provided exceptional service, quality craftsmanship and, most importantly, customer satisfaction to our clients.
Ornate works are forged and shaped from steel, copper, brass, bronze, aluminum, and stainless steel to created gates, staircases, light fixtures, railings, fencing, and many other pieces of iron work. Our craftsmen are not only very skilled, but willing to go far beyond normal standards to create new works of art.
Our lead blacksmith, Jim Lemke, grew up in a family fencing business that did wrought iron work as one of the product lines. Traveling to Mexico, Guatemala, Romania, Lithuania, Hungary and Israel on missions and touring trips has created many opportunities to study old iron work that has been passed down for many generations. His study houses a substantial library from which he pulls design concepts.
We work as a team to create each piece, whether straightforward or more ornamental. Iron work done well is the result of each craftsman interjecting his thoughts and experience into the piece. A good piece of wrought iron should look like it was easy to do. It is the sign that the artisans have done the job well.
We are always learning. With each project, whether it involves more ornamental iron work seen on our gates or chandeliers or targets maximum architectural integrity and clean lines, or both, we build on a solid platform of skills and understanding. This is part of our commitment to creating original, high quality wrought iron work.
