My husband and I had Gennadii craft several custom pieces for our lakehouse, including a gate, signage, deck panels and railings. The pieces were amazing, and we would recommend Gennadii without hesitation to anyone looking for a dedicated, skilled artisan who provides first-class blacksmith work and installation.

My wife and I had been looking for railing ideas for our house for about two years. We had done a lot of renovation to the house and the old railings were dated, and we were tired of looking at the same old thing in all the wood shops and home catalogues. We wanted something substantial and unique. We met Genna by chance and are we ever glad we did. Our railings are truly one of a kind piece of art. They are a central entry feature to our home, and we have many friends who are sad to learn that Genna has taken his master craftsmanship to BC. The railings Genna created for us were by far the most expensive option we considered and we couldn't be happier.
If you are looking for one-of-a-kind forged art to adorn your home I can not say enough about Genna's work and ethics. We found him to be trustworthy and delivered a product that exceeded the expectations Genna promised.

Genna handcrafted a one of a kind gate for us . We asked him to incorporate tiger lilies and wheat since we farm. It is a beautiful addition to our house, and we have received many compliments about it. He did the work in a timely manner and ensured that it was properly installed. We will commission him to add further pieces in the future. He is creative dedicated and talented.

Gennadii, I'm writing to thank you for the beautiful wrought iron railing that you designed and fabricated for our home. It is truly one of a kind and will tie nicely into our future finishing details. The work you completed was meticulous and completed on time. We were especially impressed with the attention to detail including the oil brushed bronze finish. We look forward to having you involved with future projects.

We had recently bought a house, then proceeded to completely gut and renovate it. To give it that special finishing touch, we contacted Gennadii to commission a handcrafted feature railing. He sketched up a few ideas, and we chose one that appealed to us the most. It is just beautiful and we are so happy with how it turned out! Once the railing was installed, we realized that a gate would add to the piece. Gennadii thought long and hard about how to make a gate that would complement the railing, and latch in such a way as to not interfere with the esthetic. He rose to the challenge with innovation, patience, never losing his cool with our "ideas and suggestions", and was extremely accommodating to a demanding customer. :D (Talking about myself unfortunately) The gate is fantastic, and now my favorite part of the whole renovation! I can highly recommend Gennadii to deliver a quality product with customer service that others should strive to emulate. Well done Gennadii!!

We saw Gennadii's add of his blacksmithing on a variety of pieces, and decided to get a stair rail made. He gave us a quote, which we were happy with, and he did exactly what we wanted to perfection. It's fabulous, a wonderful artist. Gennadii also came to our home to install and patinate it, to give it depth, and it's final glow. Just can't get over the workmanship. Thank you Gennadii!

We are the proud owners of railing "The Kozak Returns Home". It really is much more than a railing, it is a piece of art! Every time we go to the front door, we have to take a second to admire this piece. Thank you Gennadii for your wonderful work!! If we ever move, this is coming with us!

I contacted Genna to discuss some ideas for a custom art piece of wrought iron. He was very flexible in meeting with me and was always willing to make time. I felt he understood what my goal was and provided excellent draft drawings of his design. I was immediately impressed and loved his ideas. He completed the work on time, and it looked better than I expected. His installation of the project was great. I found Genna to be honest, reliable, and an expert in his trade. I willingly recommend him to many. Thank you for your work Genna, I love it!

I found Gennadii through a local classified ad listing online when I was looking for a local blacksmith to fulfill my dream in creating a unique, artistic and simply beautiful driveway gate. I was hesitating to contact him as I was afraid I would not be able to afford a custom made iron work. However, I decided to inquire about his work. To my surprise, the workmanship he has offered was reasonably priced. I described to Gennadii my ideas and style I had in my mind. Gennadii materialized my envision perfectly. It was a pleasure to work with Gennadii, who did an outstanding job from start to finish, creating one of a kind fine craftsmanship. Gennadii is professional and dedicated to make a unique and stunning masterpiece. I love my gate and definitely would recommend Gennadii Boyarskyi Artist Blacksmith to my friends, co-workers, and acquaintances.
