Standing beside the blacksmith’s door,
And hearing the hammers, as they smote
The anvils with a different note,
Stole from the varying tones, that hung
Vibrant on every iron tongue,
The secret of the sounding wire,
And formed the seven-chorded lyre.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, To a Child
I am a metal artist from the historic iron town of Marmora Ontario. I currently practice my art at the RedBarns: artisan’s playground in Picton, Ontario.(www.theredbarns.com).
Utilizing a blend of traditional and modern metal-forming and design techniques, I can create a wide array of beautiful, functional and unique objects for the home or any setting.
