For me, the physical act of forging steel with fire, anvil and hammer is a passion. I love the challenge of manipulating the hot steel to create art. When I work on a piece, it usually starts as a chalk drawing on the floor or table. After heating the metal, I shape each piece to match the drawing. Once I have all the components forged, I compose the structure by welding or riveting all the parts together. I like the natural look of steel. My current work is small steel sculpture. I want the viewer to explore and enjoy each piece in the hand.
Take Academy St (Hwy 123) towards Easley. Cross over Pendleton St through the traffic light. At the next traffic light (Andrews St), turn left. The studio is on the left.
