As reported by Rob Frederick, February 29, 2004  in The (Pittsburgh) Tribune Review :

" Nigel Tudor, a metalsmith in Avella, Washington County, went from selling candlesticks at craft fairs to designing custom garden gates. His fireplace tools sell for $375.

Tudor is 22.

His Web site has drawn inquiries from Moldova and Indonesia. His architect contacts have brought custom railing work. His small shop -- he is the lone employee -- has brought another benefit most independent furniture-makers know well:

Last month, in a lull between commissions, Tudor absorbed a loss that might have meant layoffs at a larger shop. Confident the work would come, he renovated his forge space, making the best of his bided time. "
