    Keeper of the Gate   The Life and Works of Philip Simmons  Master Blacksmith

    Philip Simmons, now the most celebrated of Charleston ironworkers, was born on near-by Daniel Island in 1912. A Charleston resident since 1919, he attended local schools but received his most important education from local blacksmith Peter Simmons, who ran a busy shop at the foot of Calhoun Street. Here he acquired the values and refined the talents that would sustain him throughout his long metalworking career.
    Moving into the specialized field of ornamental iron in 1938 , Simmons fashioned more that two hundred decorative pieces of ornamental wrought iron: gates, fences, balconies, and window grills. The city of Charleston is truly decorated from end to end by his hand.
    In 1982, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded him its National Heritage Fellowship, the highest honor that the United States can bestow on a traditional artist.
