About

David C. Rockhold designs and fabricates fine metal furnishing and sculpture.  Born in New Orleans Rockhold has built up a strong following in the region. I love to design works based on fond memories that clients describe to me over a cup of coffee.  Designs  are based on complimenting a particular space in their home, sometimes we do a chandelier in one room maybe a fire screen or table in the other.  I like a home with a touch of custom iron work!  Much of my style comes from memories of fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico .  The long rides from the Venice or Empire docks thru the bayous or down the Mississippi.  Exploring on foot or by bike Audubon and City Park as a boy left a great impression.  Even gardening with my mom and grandmother,  spending much time at local nurseries exploring the diffferent plants and trees.  It’s amazing all the things ones mind holds on tight to from childhood and then comes forward later in life that make you at peace when working/creating.  Making furniture is very personal to me and I have enjoyed the time spent designing with clients, designers and architects just as much as the build.
