Alyssa and Erikdavid Kraemer

WHO: Alyssa and Erikdavid Kraemer, owners of E. Kraemer Fine Metal & Woodwork.

WHAT: We are a high-end fabrication studio specializing in the design and build of furnishings and architectural elements for residential and commercial spaces.

WHERE: All custom pieces are designed and fabricated in our 14,000-square-foot facility located in the Upper 9th Ward. Our work can be found at Auction House Market, Gianna, Jewel of the South, Justine, Hotel Monteleone and the new [Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport].

WHEN: Erikdavid Kraemer comes from a long line of artisans where working with their hands is second nature. First learning how to make violins with his luthier father, Erikdavid later incorporated a slew of metalworking techniques into his skillset. Alyssa, after working many years for others, decided it was time for the two of them to try something new, different and exciting.

HOW: Combining an eye for design and detail with a passion for engineering, our team is invigorated by building unique and challenging pieces. We are one of the few fabrication shops in the country specializing in red metals (brass, bronze, copper). With an arsenal of trusted craftsmen, our talented and driven team can make any project a reality.

WHY: Because the details matter.

IN OUR WORDS: We love collaborating with creative people on innovative designs and unique projects.
