About Our Custom Designed Range Hoods:
The Art of Range Hoods' Story
Art of Range Hoods is a father (Vladimir) and son (Max) business focused on pursuing the highest quality custom designed range hoods, bringing homes one extraordinary piece at a time. Our decorative range hoods are not produced by anyone other than my father and myself. Each of our custom made range hoods are fashioned from a single sheet of 100% Virgin Cold Rolled American Copper (or stainless) and delivered from us to you.
For 5 generations we have carried our sheet-metal family secret recipes to make our kitchen hoods distinctly unique. We provide a variety of kitchen range hoods for many different types of clients including designers, design firms, home builders, architects and home decorators. We enjoy working with each customer personally, making sure all expectations are met directly. Art of Range Hoods has extensive experience in crafting decorative range hoods, and through our creativity we have made continual engagements with our customers at an unsurpassed value.
My father is an amazing artist with a technical eye for design and engineering when designing our range hoods. Black Smith and Engineer by trade he took on a project with sheet metal to help decorate an old Orthodox Church with ornamental art work from stainless steel. His passion grew with each art piece he created and replicated many more decorative roofs, chimneys, custom artistic downspouts and ornaments for wealthy clients across Europe. Seeing the success he continued to pursue his passion in the United States with more advanced designs for range hoods, copper roofs, chimney tops, awnings and artistic downspouts. My fathers’ artistic talents (add text) in designing quality kitchen range hoods have reached many media outlets including The Washington Post, Fine Homebuilding, The Oregonian, The Columbian and many more!
Growing up around my fathers’ business, I’ve advanced my metal-smithing apprenticeship from the age of 10 years old. He took me everywhere! Traveling across country to trade shows, showcasing my fathers’ business and learning the lost art of metal-smithing. My father saw my passion working with copper and learning to be a patina artist from early years while participating in the Portland Creative Metal Arts Guild Show for more than 10 years. Taking patina classes and studying with talented Ron Young has helped me achieve great success in my line of work. Patina and finish work has been my passion for many years and I love doing what I do today with Art of Range Hoods.
Today we have the honor of serving the Pacific Northwest region and around the world. Our customers have entrusted us to create our legacy in their home by providing unique custom range hoods, a legacy each family business once carried.
Unfortunately many online websites selling copper range hoods (sinks and faucets) “falsely” claiming their product to be made in USA. Many companies intentionally will not disclose where their product is made and do everything to make it seem made in USA. This usually means their copper product is made in China (or others similar) from soft recycled annealed copper that can carry lead, mercury and arsenic which takes away from the “antibacterial” properties they claim to have. Furthermore, daily exposure to these nasty chemicals is extremely dangerous to you and your family. With millions of lead-infused items being recalled from China, this kind of business is not with promoting healthy environments for your kitchen.
