About Us

Welcome to Westphal IronWorks LLC or also known as Iowa Metal Art.

We are Jeff & Kim Westphal from Casey, Iowa.

We have been in business since 2006, doing custom welding and fabrication. Along with the metal working we farm around 175 acres of corn and soybeans.  We both do the design work on our products.  Jeff runs the burn table most of the time, but Kim had helped out.  Both us do the air brushing and copper patina pieces.  Jeff does the powder coating.  Kim does the packaging and shipping and takes care of the administrative side of the business.  We do area Art & Craft shows in the spring and the fall, averaging 15-20 shows a year.  We have shown and sold our products at the Iowa State Fair since 2010.

We both grew up on farms.  We have been married for over 30 years and counting, with three grown children and a couple of grandchildren.  Jeff’s interest in metal started in the mid 1970’s while he was in Jr. Hight cutting scrap iron on a farm did dad bought.  That sparked his interest in welding and metal work.  Prior to 2006, Jeff had worked in a couple of  large factories for about 10 years as a welder and we ventured out on our own (with God’s leading and blessing) doing custom fabricating work in 2006.  We bought a used CNC Plasma table in 2009 and in 2012 we built our new 60′  x 1000′ shop

.We have been cutting parts for other manufacturers and have been working on lots of unique metal signs and artwork, along with the fabrication.

Kim grew up doing arts & crafts.  Her mother taught her how to sew, knit, embroidery and counted cross stitch.  Jeff’s mother taught her how to crochet.  Kim had many itmes in the local county fair during her 4-H years.  Kim has made many gifts through the years for her family and friends.

Here’s a commercial that tells a little bit more about what we do.
