Formally trained in both graphic design & fine art, Robert Aucoin combined his artistic talents with his love for structural design and welding to create his innovative design/manufacturing studio "Iron Art" in 1993...
The Iron Art studio/workshop is located on the north shore of Loughborough Lake just outside of Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
As an artist, Robert remains closely connected to the art community, creating one of a kind pieces presented in art guilds, galleries, juried art shows, as well as on etsy.com/shop/ironartcanada an "all things handmade" site for artists.
As a designer, Robert often begins with his own concept, simple sketch, or with an idea from clientele which includes designers, artists, architects and Canadian companies such as Roots Canada & Roots Soho, New York. While continuing to accept residential and commercial commissions, creating interiors, exteriors, functional furnishings and accessories that will last a lifetime, Robert continues to expand his repertoire.
A new line of original, hand forged, stainless steel buckles to compliment jeans, suits and casual wear was created recently when Robert's own children were finding it hard to find unique, belt buckles for their jeans.
Dad went to work designing in the studio...each buckle is unique, hand forged, textured on the anvil and bears the artist's signature.

• If you can put your existing belt and buckle on--take note of which hole you use most.
• Then, lay the belt flat and measure from the hole you use most, to the fold over end on the belt.
• Keep the snaps done up on your belt (if you have snaps.)
• Don't include the buckle in your measurement.
