Forged Iron

Of all the crafts the blacksmith needs the least to perform his work. The main elements in his practice are fire and iron, and from this all else can follow. This element of simplicity is one of the underlying principles in these works, which all are made using just the material by itself.

With modern day tools like a propane torch and a spot welder, new interpretations of pattern and form are investigated in the extensive tradition of wrought iron. By setting a single technique for connecting the material as a guideline for the works, the pattern and form follow from the properties inherent to the material and the process.
