For four generations, over a span of 90 years, the Crest of the Potter family has been the inspiration of the finest metal artisans in the Southwest. Richard Potter Jr. carries on the legacy of extreme metalwork left to him by his grandfather Henry Potter, who opened the business in 1920 when his lantern-making hobby outgrew his backyard.
Potter Art Metal Studios, Inc. of Dallas has designed and hand-wrought artistic metal products in iron, bronze, brass and aluminum, which now grace thousands of homes and businesses throughout the United States.
We take pride in our ability to design and produce truly unique items for any home -- from the humblest to the most elaborate.
You have probably seen our ironwork throughout the city without realizing it. The Lakewood Clifford Hutsell and Charles Dilbeck houses are adorned with our ironwork and lanterns. The beautiful light fixtures at Fair Park were also made by the Potter family. The enormous, beautiful art deco light fixtures in Downtown Dallas and the light fixtures at White Rock Lake are Potter originals, as well as the fixtures of just about every beautiful church in the area, including Christ the King and Highland Park Methodist... the list just goes on and on.
So, next time you see a spectacular fixture or a piece of wrought iron, ask us about it! It's probably ours.
The extent of our products, materials and finishes are endless. Careful attention to detail is our principal concern, along with complete customer satisfaction. We produce tomorrow's antiques as functional art for today.
