The forging process creates a relationship between the maker and the material that is unique to the art. This relationship is made from the physical and mental energy that is needed to shape a piece of metal using fire and force. The material itself has a physicality that embodies the idea of presence. As a blacksmith I work to blur the line between sculptural and functional.
