~~~ Cornerstone Forge ~~~
Authentic Hand Hammered Aluminum Gift Ware & Jewelry
" Since 1999" , Cornerstone Forge has been making over 800
different items. Each piece is
handmade by me, one at a time just as
they were back in the 1930's when the hammered aluminum industry
began.  Today there are only a few hammered aluminum artisans
left who hand hammer items as I do using sheet aluminum,
hammers, hand clamps and hand engraved steel dies.  Each piece
is then polished to a bright clean finish.   
My pure grade aluminum
does not tarnish and never needs
polishing.  It is
food safe and can be used to serve any food.  You
hand wash in warm soapy water, avoid sharp objects and it
will last for generations. It makes a unique and thoughtful hand
made gift that will be remembered.
Give the gift that keeps on giving!

Preserving a Legacy!
The dies that I use to create the pieces that I make were hand
engraved by various masters of the craft.  These vintage dies
were hand engraved in steel with some dating back to the
1930's.  Each piece I make is marked with the
stamp along with a stamp indicating the die engraver's
name.  Those pieces made with dies engraved by Henry
Mansfeld are marked
"Hand Wrought Mansfeld by Dennis" ;  
those made with dies from L. Gene Stewart are marked
Wrought Stewart by Dennis
" ; those made with dies engraved
by Steve Adams are marked
"Hand Wrought Adams by
"; those made with dies engraved by A. J. Hoover are
"Hand Wrought Hoover by Dennis" ;
those made with dies engraved by Jim Baker are marked
"Hand Wrought Baker by Dennis" and those pieces made
with my own original designs and dies are marked
Wrought by Dennis
".  For more information on these artisans
please click on this "
Artisan Information" link .
My intent is to preserve the die engravings, keeping their
artwork and legacy alive while sharing it with a new generation
of lovers of hand hammered aluminum gift ware. These timeless
pieces are made by me, with pride and dedication to my art and
like snowflakes, no two pieces are identical.
In 1946, Jack Orenstein of the Everlast Metal Products company
successfully campaigned for aluminum to join tin as the (tenth)
10th wedding anniversary material and to this day is the metal to
give as a 10th anniversary gift.

Commemorate that 10 year mark with a gift that symbolizes just
how thankful you are for each other.  Aluminum represents the
durability and flexibility needed to sustain a lasting, loving union.

Hand hammered aluminum also makes the perfect wedding gift.
