Isaac Wallwork

Craftsperson
Born Ca. 1901, Gladwynne, Pennsylvania
Died January 31, 1986, Doylestown, Pennsylvania

Art metal blacksmith Isaac T. Wallwork worked with the renowned Bucks County artist Morgan Colt at the Gothic Shop at Phillips Mill in New Hope. He made several ornamental iron pieces for St. Phillip's Episcopal Chapel in New Hope. He also worked for the Frederick Glass Company of Bethayres, retiring as personnel director in 1967. He made his first ironwork for the George Ely Riding Academy, New Hope in 1923. His delicate iron grill work festures floral motifs with birds, lions, and dragons, used in doors, tables, lanterns, lamps, and flower stands. When the craft market declined, Wallwork went into industry, using the skills he had developed as a metal worker.
