About The Artist
Paul Angiolillo • Jackson, WY
Hello, my name is Paul. I run Independent Ironware, a blacksmith shop specializing in making highly functional carbon steel cookware. Each piece is artisan made by hand and is built to last. Each piece is solely made by me. I have always found value in goods that have a long lasting purpose, that you only have to buy once, and will outlive you. And those are just some of the elements that I strive for in my cookware.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
Everything I make is by a hand made process using traditional blacksmith techniques. Nothing in my shop is made by a machine, I have to operate every tool with precision and skill. The most common three tools I utilize the most making my cookware is the fire, hammer, and anvil.
