As an artist-blacksmith I specialize in original custom forged steel art, especially forged steel Shadow Sculptures.
About Our Studio
My studio is a state-of-the-art modern blacksmith shop, centered around the forge and the anvil. I have several of each, and enjoy modern tooling such as the power hammer, hand-held air hammer, hydraulic press, and fly press. But at heart, my work is all hand work.
Take a Class!
Several years ago I began teaching
blacksmithing here, and have found that to be very
enjoyable. I welcome students of all abilities,
but focus primarily on CBA Level I classes.
In recent years I have begun to focus primarily on Shadow Sculptures and related forms, including various types of Visual iAlign Sculptures. I have found these to be very challenging and enjoyable. Jump to my Shadow Sculpture page to learn more!

California Blacksmith Magazine
For about ten years, I have been the editor of the California Blacksmith Magazine, for the California Blacksmith Association. This has been rewarding for me, allowing me to meet and learn from many superb blacksmiths.
