Formally trained in both Graphic Design & Fine Art, Robert Aucoin combined his artistic talents with his love for structural design & welding to create his innovative design & manufacturing studio “Iron Art” in 1993 with his wife Lisa. The Iron Art studio/workshop is located on the north shore of Loughborough Lake just outside of Kingston, Ontario.
As an artist, Robert remains closely connected to the art community creating one of a kind pieces presented in art guilds & galleries.
As a designer, Robert often begins with his own concept or a simple sketch or idea from his vast clientele which includes Roots Canada, Roots/Soho/NY, interior designers, artists, architects and individuals. Whether producing one of a kind items or working with clients, the bottom line is they trust Robert with their ideas from concept to completion.
While continuing to accept residential and commercial commissions, creating interiors, exteriors, functional furnishings & accessories that will last a lifetime, Robert continues to expand his repertoire.
A new line of original, hypoallergenic, 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, hypo allergenic belt buckles for their jeans.
He went to work designing in the studio... Each buckle bears the artist’s signature ... Buckles & belts are now selling worldwide!
