With the conclusion of the 1893 Columbian Exposition, Cyril Colnik arrived in Milwaukee at the perfect moment. During the last quarter of the nineteenth century, Milwaukee had become well known for its myriad of industries that included brewing, tanning, publishing, meat packing and machine manufacturing. A large part of Colnik's immediate success can be both literally and figuratively the result of his many German-American clients. They appreciated that Colnik already had the knowledge and talent to bring the ornate wrought iron ornament style of the Rhine to his newly adopted city. While Colnik was able to forge amazing designs in iron, he was also an excellent manager of the men whom he hired to embark on his growing commissions. He was a very sophisticated artist respected by everyone.
