Photo of the Week: A Handsome (and heavy) Donation


Iron studio coordinator Daniel Beck looking over a remarkable donation from David and Ed Crane. Ed is a blacksmith who lives in Little Switzerland, NC, just a ways uphill from Penland. His age forced him to give up blacksmithing, so he and his son David gave Penland everything in his shop: lock, stock, and boxes of nuts and bolts. The donation includes several large tools that will go right into the iron shop, many hand tools, and a few pieces of equipment that are needed elsewhere on campus. Thanks, David and Ed!
