"Creative Iron made several pieces for our home in Sydney during its 2010-2011 renovation, including a driveway gate, double front entry doors and a balcony railing. Our requirements were very specific and fairly complicated in their design and Craig worked tirelessly to fulfil all our needs with excellent attention to detail. He sourced components he had not worked with before to ensure we got exactly what we wanted, he worked closely with us to ensure the design did not compromise the integrity and strength of the pieces, and he provided us with sample pieces completed in their final painted form for our approval. Throughout the entire process, Craig was communicative, diligent and professional and we would not hesitate to recommend him."
John & Trish Robinson
I would like to thank you for the work you have done on our recently refurbished residence in Fannie Bay.
The new front doors and balustrades on our internal staircases provide a dramatic and impressive introduction to our property and enhance its stately presentation.
The sheer beauty and elegance of the balustrades always draws comments from guests who appreciate the superb craftsmanship. There are also those who recognise the skill and precision required to execute such a complicated application.
The design, manufacture and installation remained within specified timelines and your professional approach and expertise ensured the entire process occurred without incident.
I would have no hesitation in recommending yourself and Creative Iron to anyone requiring wrought iron products and particularly to those looking for something exciting and unique.
Regards John (Foxy )Robinson
Matt and Michelle Sheddon
Michelle and I would like to thank you for all your help and hard work on building our ‘cyclone’ gates and balustrade. They are better than we could ever have hoped for!
From the moment we started building our home we knew we wanted something special. Something unique and not the usual, ‘more of the same’.
The entire process was made easy for us by the way you took control and subtly led us through the steps to come up with the final product.
From the beaten steel, to the red gum timber handrails and the crystal spheres, it all works, and your creativity has certainly helped enhance the appeal of our home.
We never thought we’d go for the crystal spheres, but once we saw yours we knew we had to have some of our own. Lights and all.
Good honest Aussie customer service is hard to come by these days Craig, thankfully we were able to find you.
Again Craig, thank you so much.
African Brothers All Star Drummers
Thank you so much for working the iron rings to hold the goat skins onto our African drums. Without you we could not be making our pulsating African rhythms! During the last year “your drums” have been used at performances at Charles Darwin University functions, African dinner dance, Jabiru Festival, Mindil Markets, Darwin Community Arts community dinners, Children’s Week, Human Rights Day, Parliament House, Brown’s Mart 40th Birthday, Oz Fusion multicultural Australia Day, the opening of Malak Community Shed, Nightcliff Seabreeze Festival, Merrepen and Darwin Festival. I (Mbackeh) have also used them for my “African Cultural Experience” schools and children’s workshops such as City of Darwin’s Fun in the Parks. Together we have made a lot of people happy.
Steve Monty Castlepeake Homes - Director
Castlepeake Homes has worked on a couple of projects here in Sydney with Craig Guerin of Creative Iron. Craig has created ironwork fence panels, gates, screens and balustrades to specific client requirements and designs. Our clients appreciated the expertise and experience that Craig has in producing such impressive ironwork designs.
The design, fabrication and delivery process, on all occasions, worked extremely well even though Craig is in Darwin and we are located in Sydney. We would have no hesitation in recommending Craig to create your special designs and our working with Craig again on future projects.
