My interest in metal work had its roots in my lifelong admiration of the outstanding traditional blacksmith’s work in and around my native Philadelphia. Here, there are many inspiring examples of the work by the late Samuel Yellin, the famous artist blacksmith, and others. Those 19th and early 20th century artists inspired me to learn -- which I continue to do -- and my hobby turned into a business in 1998. Now, I combine traditional and modern methods to try to create work that is graceful, sometimes funny, challenging and unique.
