A Metalsmith’s Guide to Washington, D.C.

19 Minute Read

By Betty Helen LonghiMore from this author

This is a continuing series of metalsmith's guides to cities, regions and museums throughout the world. The purpose of these guides is to give those interested in viewing metalwork during their travels an introduction to the treasures and resources, both accessible and hidden, of a certain place. The tours also document history and tradition in the field of metalwork.

Metalsmith magazine encourages submissions of ideas for these guides. The tours should focus on a single location and be illustrated with maps, line drawings and photographs whenever possible. Metalwork can be found all around us in both urban and rural environments. No place is too remote to mention—an exquisite bronze bust in a hotel lobby, a certain iron grill, knives in a fishing tackle store. Here is a chance to share your favorite places and works with others. Send submissions to: Sarah Bodine, Editor, Metalsmith, 1 Penn Lyle Road, PrinceJunction, NJ 08550.

Introduction and Points of Interest

On visiting our nation's capital one cannot help but feel a sense of pride in the image it projects. Extending from Capitol Hill to the Lincoln Memorial, the vista of the long green Mall flanked by stately museums makes a profound and positive visual statement.

Washington Monument

For the visiting metalsmith, the D.C. area provides a wealth of metal objects to be seen and appreciated. From the tip of the Washington Monument—at the time of its construction, the largest single piece of cast aluminum in the world—to a metal fence made of guns in Georgetown (on the corner of P St. and 28th), there is much to be seen just by traveling the city streets.

Washington abounds in cast bronze and iron statues, found in almost every monument, park and circle in the city. Of special note is the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington National Cemetery, a 78-foot, 100-ton portrayal of the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima. Less well known but esthetically significant is a sculpture by Saint-Gaudons installed in Rock Creek Cemetery as a memorial to Mrs. Henry Adams in 1893. The seated, draped figure was named "Grief" by Mark Twain and was a favorite of Eleanor Roosevelt, who visited it frequently. Another unusual sculpture entitled "The Awakening" represents a huge giant emerging from the ground; only the knee, foot, arm and head are visible as he struggles to free himself from the earth. The scale is impressive, as the head alone is 15 feet high. The statue is located at the tip of Haines Pt. on the D.C. side of the Potomac.

On a more contemporary note, welded steel sculptures by emerging young artist Christopher Gardner are on display at numerous locations throughout the D.C. area, including the National Children's Museum at 4th and E Sts. S.E., the Washington Convention Center at 9th and G Sts. And the Orthopedic Center at 8th St. and Massachusetts Ave.

The list of sculpture could go on and on for those especially interested an excellent reference is: Outdoor Sculpture of Washington by James Goode, Smithsonian Press, 955 L'Enfant Plaza, Suite 2100, Washington, DC 20560. It is available at most Smithsonian book shops.

The use of cast and wrought iron in fences and architectural ornament is extensive throughout the D.C. area. Of special note are the following:

  • Tall cast iron fence around Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown.
  • High wrought iron fence in front of the Cosmos Club on Massachusetts Ave.
  • White House fence on Pennsylvania Ave.
  • Tree rings and benches designed by Albert Paley, located on Pennsylvania Ave. in front of the White House.
  • Set of gates and screed designed by Albert Paley, located Marriott Hotel on Pennsylvania Ave.
  • A showcase for Albert Paley's work is: Clydes of Tysons Corner, 8332 Leesburg Pike, Vienna, VA 22180; (301) 734-1901. In this beautiful restaurant Palye has executed interior railings, lamps, and irons and pillars as well as an award-winning set of forged bronze door handles for the revolving front door.
  • Memorable for its metal appointments is the Washington Cathedral at the corner of Massachusetts and Wisconsin Aves. Among the largest cathedrals in the world, it boasts bronze doors imported from Greece and interior wrought ironwork by Samuel Yellin and Tom Bredlow. For additional information the serious student of architectural metalwork may contact: Michael Horne, c/o Zenith Gallery, 1443 Rhode Island Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20005, or call: (202) 532-4572.


One of Washington's greatest assets is its museums. Between government-sponsored and private institutions the visitor is offered an incredible body of objects and information on almost any subject imaginable at little or no cost.

Smithsonian Institution

This is a blanket organization for a group of museums covering a vast array of subjects from space travel to the First Ladies' gowns. Most of the buildings are located along the Mall which extends from the Capitol to the Washington Monument; others are scattered throughout the D.C. area. Each individual museum has a series of permanent and changing exhibits as well as large amounts of undisplayed material in its collections. In many cases individuals may make arrangements to see undisplayed collections by contacting the museum of interest in advance. A week's notice is preferred and the request must be specific in nature. That is, one could not request to see silver objects in general, but could ask to see 18th-century silver holloware.

All Smithsonian museums can be contacted using the following address and phone number.

The current exhibit, "After the Revolution: Everyday Life in America," contains good examples of iron, silver and pewter housewares from the period 1780-1800. Of particular interest is the section titled "Philadelphia Artisans," which displays the tools and products of blacksmiths, coopers and silversmiths as they were used at that time.

Another area noted for its quaint atmosphere and good selection of shops and boutiques is across the Potomac from Washington in Old Town, Alexandria, VA.

Here the central attraction is the Torpedo Factory, a cooperative art center containing working studios and galleries for 180 artists. The name refers to the original use of the building during World War II. Its conversion by a group of hardworking artists was instrumental in changing the entire atmosphere of Old Town. A number of metalsmiths have studios in the Torpedo Factory, including Susan Portner, Erick Margry and Angela Livingston. Members of "Studio M-1," also housed there, include some of the area's better known jewelers. All studios are open to the public and welcome visitors. For further information contact:

These are taught by leaders in the field and cover all aspects of metalsmithing, technical, and esthetic. A newsletter containing technical information, guild news, schedules for shows, fair, etc., is published at regular intervals. A juried exhibition of members' work is organized about every two years.

Enamelists Guild

One of the first organizations of enamelists in the country, the Guild has grown since its inception in 1974 to a membership of over 150 artists with two-thirds of them living in the D.C. area. They offer a formal program every other month which alternates among technical information, esthetic viewpoints and critiques. Two or three workshops by nation experts are sponsored each year. Their newsletter highlights topics covered in the meetings as well as information on shows, fairs and opportunities to buy and sell tools and materials. They sponsor a National Enamelists Guild Exhibit every four years (next to be in 1987) and a local members' show at sporadic intervals.
