Are you looking for a one-of-a-kind Christmas gift? How about a hand-made, custom-designed, long-lasting, beautiful metal ornament? BC Metal Designs in Calvert produces and sells flat metal ornaments with designs from traditional to singular. Business owner Field Cain creates many of the designs himself.
“We cut a lot of traditional designs, like Texas lone stars and holiday candy canes,” notes Cain, “but I also enjoy creating my own designs or working with people to develop a design that fulfills their vision.”
Cain recently opened a retail outlet for his metal artwork and fabrication products in Calvert, where his business shares space with Rock Hill Farm Studios. Many area residents know the Main Street building as the Old Calvert Foundry, making it an appropriately named location for a metal-work enterprise. The street side of the Foundry houses items for sale from both BC Metal Designs and Rock Hill Farm Studios. In addition to being sold at the Calvert location, BC Metal Designs products are handled by the gift shop at George Bush Presidential Library and Museum.
“Our products are a good fit in museums, and I’m pleased they’re being sold at the Bush Library,” Cain says. “We’re hoping to expand to other museums and outlets soon.”
BC Metal Designs offers custom plasma cutting and ornamental metal designs in a wide range of items, from large to small. From fire pits and entry gates to refrigerator magnets and ornaments, BC Metal Designs produces a myriad of items and, of course, designs. On your next trip down Calvert’s Main Street, stop by the Old Calvert Foundry and see what Field Cain has designed for you for the holidays…and beyond.
BC Metal Designs is open weekends and during Calvert Trade Days, with the remaining Trade Day this year taking place on December 15.
