Blacksmithing is an ancient and highly skilled art. For a good part of our existence we have relied heavily on the Blacksmith for all of our tools from needles to weapons. We are familiar with and comforted by the lines and shapes created by quality craftsmanship. When people see my work I want them to feel an emotional response. I want them to feel connected to the beauty created by the lines and shapes, both positive and negative, in the design. I couple ancient techniques and joinery with contemporary ideas in order to touch the place in you that instinctually remembers the Blacksmith.
