Drop Metal is a design collaboration studio with a focus on metal and complimentary materials. We concentrate our efforts toward custom products and limited runs of specialty items. All of our design and fabrication is completed in Prospect, TN.
Drop Metal is run by designers – Micah Gregg and Kacie Hodges. We moved out to rural TN to work for ourselves and do things our way. We live a pretty simple country life in sync with our natural surrounds.
Micah has been working with metal for over 10 years, gaining experience from vocational school and a handful of retired metal gurus. He studied Industrial Design and tinkers with lots of things.
Kacie is a textile aficionado with a focus on sustainable products and processes. She runs our alpaca farm, as well as the back end of Drop Metal by handling all emails, marketing, and photography. Luckily, she can also weld and handle a side grinder, which comes in handy when things gets busy around the shop.
When large sections of metal are cut at a large scale manufacturing facility, the discarded metal that drops to the ground is often referred to as “drop metal.” This is the source of our name and much of our medium. We continue to use as much drop and scrap material as possible.
Often, our best pieces come from the scraps lying around on the shop floor, put together on a whim.
We value clean design, rustic accents, simplistic materials, old world techniques and nothing less than craftsman quality.
We are always open to a challenge and strongly encourage collaborations.
Please contact us today if you’re interested in collaborating. We look forward to hearing from you!
