Artist Statement | In terms of the work I forge, iron lends itself perfectly to this mixing. It is ancient in origin, holds enduring strength, and possesses the character to be sleek, fluid, and elegant. I love the process; the challenge of getting metal to do what I visualize, and using very basic tools.
