Jon Sarriugarte’s new designs available at Restoration Hardware

 Restoration Hardware

I was approached by Gary Friedman and his team from restoration Hardware this year to design a group of lights for them. Gary and the team had eaten at Camino restaurant in Oakland CA and liked the lights I had done for them. I ended up designing 11 lights for RH for the fall catalog.
These production lights are beautifully crafted, well designed and very affordable.

If you’re interested in a uniquely designed and crafted light just for you please contact me. jon at formandreform dot com

My custom work is made right here in West Oakland in my shop Form & Reform. Each piece is signed and made to make your space uniquely yours. Here is some of the custom lighting I have done.

My furniture line is available here

California Blacksmithing Oktoberfest Oct 2-4th 2009

I spent the weekend setting this up for the coming weekend and I think it will be a blast. If your interested in smithing or metal work this is a great place to hone your skills and meet some new people.


Set up crew at the spot Jimmy passed away last year.

Andrew Dohner has 10 years experience as an industrial welder and fabricator as well as extensive background as a journeyman blacksmith.  His journey has included opportunities to work in several shops and given him a diverse education culminating in a unique approach to forging steel.  He has taught classes and conducted several demonstrations.  His more recent work has been exhibited in Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina.  He produces functional architectural pieces including furniture, lighting and hardware.

CBA’s Oktoberfest takes place the first weekend of October every year at Frtiz Hagist’s Ranch in the beautiful coastal hills north of Cazadero. The weekend is filled with great food and friends, the occasional pyromania and of course some of the best blacksmithing around.

California Blacksmith Association April 23-26 in Petaluma


The CBA is a wonderful organization that shares the tradition of blacksmithing. It’s not often we get to have it so close to the Bay Area. If you have interest in starting, or want to learn more this is the event for you. This group will share everything they know and teaching stations will be setup everyday of the event.

I will be there with the Snail Art Car the Golden Mean
