The KDH Cooperative Gallery is the best source for local art on the Outer Banks, and that is where you will find the artwork of Randy Hodges. It is also where you will find him working at the forge.

We are located at 502 S. Croatan Hwy., Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. That's between Kitty Hawk and Nags Head, and we'd like you to come visit us. (In local beach vernacular –we are at Milepost 8 1/2 on the Bypass next to the brew pub.)

  1. Custom work: Besides creating one-of-a-kind iron artwork and teaching the skills of the blacksmith's craft, the Manteo Blacksmith seeks custom ornamental ironworks projects. With over 25 years as a blacksmith and an engineer, Randy Hodges has the talent and creativity to execute most any project for your home or garden.

  3. Ironmonger: Ironmonger is mostly a British word, but it is a good adjective for the Manteo Blacksmith. We are always looking for tips, sources, and trades for scrap iron that has character (used horseshoes, railroad spikes, junk tools, farm machinery, etc.). Send me an email if you have something along those lines to share. Thanks.
