About Us

Custom copper and glass work combining traditional methods with new and innovative designs to create beautifully inspiring art.


Let the beauty of what we love, be what we do.

Artifex & Sons have been creating custom copper and glass work across Muskoka and beyond for the last 25+ years. Meticulously combining the traditional and the modern to create custom, handcrafted work that is unique to the region.

Their work includes cupolas, copper, steel and cedar roofs, finials, eavestroughs, chimney caps, flashings, rain chains, interior accents, fireplaces, lighting, stained & fused glass and more.

Artifex & Sons has attended both the Muskoka Autumn Studio Tour and The Cottage Life Show; they’ve been featured on both CTV, and in The Toronto Star, as well as in various lifestyle magazines.
