Hi and welcome to J & D Artistic Metal Designs
My name is Joe Brister I am a metal artist all the pieces I offer on my site are made by me from start to finish. Each piece is made as order is placed.
My lead times are 1 to 2 weeks to get made and shipped as I offer several options for most pieces. If you need to see about getting something done sooner please contact me and I can let you know if it can be done to meet your needs.
All my pieces are hand shaped and airbrushed using translucent dyes that allow the polishing effects to reflect back through the color for a unique look. After I finish my air brushing I use a very durable clear powder coat finish that gets backed on in my powder coat oven for a very durable finish.
My main passion is my fish if you would like to have something made you do not see on my site please contact me and I am sure I can make it for you.
Thank you and I hope you enjoy my site.

Hubby LOVES his early Christmas present (Flathead). He hopes the boys don’t sneak off with it.

Fun catfish, skillfully crafted & painted... love the fins & whiskers! Bought a 3-footer as a graduation gift for my son, the catfish man... as soon as this fish is "released" from his hiding place in my closet, will upload photo of JDArtDesigns handiwork. Thanks so much!
