Elegant Iron Studios, located on South Preble County Line Road in West Alexandria, has won an awards for outstanding craftsmanship in an international competition sponsored by the National Ornamental & Miscellaneous Metals Association (NOMMA).
The event was open to over 500 member firms throughout the U.S. and in seven foreign countries.
Elegant Iron Studios received a Gold award in “Interior Railings - Ferrous, Nonforged” and a Bronze award in “Unusual Ornamental Fabrication”
The presentation was made at a special banquet in St. Louis, Missouri on Saturday, March 15, during NOMMA’s 56th annual conference. The Ernest Wiemann Top Job Awards Competition is an annual contest that recognizes outstanding work in the ornamental and miscellaneous metals industry.
To win an award, entrants must submit photos and a description of their work. This material is then publicly displayed in a gallery where NOMMA member firms then vote. Winning a Top Job award has special meaning, since it represents a “voice of approval” from industry peers, according to members.
