  1. Garden before wind, rain, general grey nastiness.
  2. Hello all, I used to have a login here but lost it and had to start over. I completed my MFA in Jewelry and Metal Art last year and wanted to share some of my work. I have been forging for about 12 years, and never really had a lot of luck bladesmithing but I have always had a fine art/sculpture background. I chose to forge pattern welded steel and weave Kevlar for my thesis portfolio which surrounds ideas of masculinity, trauma, sexuality and loss of empowerment. It’s generally conceptual work rather than functional. More images to follow. -Trevor
  3. Been making spiders from references lately. Several resemble fishing spiders. So.. I couldnt help myself but make a fishing-fishing spider.
  4. Hello, friends ! Let me show you my new job. As before, I want to apologize for using a translator. I will try to write correctly. By order, I had to make a violinist out of small parts of metal plates. The violinist is made of new sheet metal, 2 millimeters. And I began to do my work with shoe and violin ... My sculpture does not have a wire frame inside. Which of course is more complicated Having made the shoes, I simply connected the pieces of metal upwards with a welding machine ... pants, shirt and head. I have to say, I have no education ... I am not an artist, and not a welder. My work is village creativity. Therefore, the head did with great difficulty. And this is what I did Then it was only necessary to collect, it was my violinist. Video from my channel on YouTube. Sculpture "Violinist". Thank you very much !

  10. What's up fellow smiths! My name is Caleb and I'm a beginning smith from South Carolina. I've only been hitting hot metal with a hammer for about 5 days now. I finally finished my first project after coming home from work and immediately fireing up the forge everyday this week. I've always been interested in smithing and I finnaly got the chance to do it after lots of preparing. Here is a picture of my set up... forge is the shell of an old hvac system shop vac for air and a cheap harbor freight anvil. so on to my first project.. but alittle back story first. Since my girlfriend has had to put up with my constant babbling on about blacksmithing and put up with binge watching forged in fire for the past couple months I decided to make her a gift a my first project. I decided to forge her initials out of some 1/4" round stock (from tractor supply) once I finished the forgeing i painted everything and decided to mount it on a wooden block. Here is what I came up with (its a little girly but she likes cute little things so it works out) 1/4" round bar from TSC forging complete painted glossy white cut a cube out of a 4x4 and drilled a hole for mounting letters painted block finished product!! let me know what you guys think! Has anyone ever done any cursive? Or words out of a single puce with no welds if so I am very curious to hear about it because I couldn't don't any info on the subject so I just had to figure it out as I went along. Im hoping to start forging my first knife soon and get back into some more manly forge work lol ps. Comment if you can read the letters lol I can easily see it but then again I already know what it says so any feedback would be great!!!
  11. Custom door knocker in the form of a Maryland blue crab. Hot oil finish with brass highlights and clear coat.
  12. The memorial was finished with a bronze powdercoat and a brass nameplate. It is now in Delaware at the airfield where Wayne received his skydiving certification. RIP Wayne.
  13. Say hello to Crash. I have been poking him around and he has had many great names and has even been called scary. Please. I find him to be cute or silly. I ended up making him versatile that his head will sit on the steering wheel Or on a stand I made. No play either way. A few friends thought one part or the other looked better on its own so there. Everyone is happy or terrified. Pic heavy!
  14. This is my latest sculpture, it is called The Roses and was inspired by the White Rose movement of Munich. The panels are made up of copper plate and mild steel and they are 1m or 40" tall, all completely riveted together.
  15. Ok, so this one is inspired from Frosty from the last elephant I made. Can't say it's exactly what he was talking about but with his story and ideas it inspired this. ( new attempt at pictures, still need a good diffused light source and a better/ bigger back drop. ) yes I have an ironing board and iron. No, I haven't used it yet. might turn it into art muahahaha. So quality of pictures aside.... Here is a circus elephant riding a unicycle while holding an umbrella with a mouse along for the ride.
  16. Needed a break from other projects so I made a squirrel to go with the giant acorn I posted in another thread. Here's a good smile for ya Frosty well I find it amusing.
  17. Just finished these copper sea turtles from copper. The first one is kind of a prototype and did a little patina on it. Both of these are made from some 3" Type "L" scrap copper I had laying around. The coral in the sculpture is made from sheet copper. The turtles were annealed and then hammered back to get the metal hard again. The granite river block weighs about 75LBS. Even though the patina on the sea turtle is more realistic of how this creature looks, I like the solid copper look better. Both turtles are just over 11" in length and 7" across.
