I was flattered by exhibit organizer Brad Allan to be selected as one of the artisans anchoring this presentation of the work of contemporary blacksmithing work.

Along with contributing a number of objects, I will be undertaking a physical demonstration at the opening April 2. Here I will be using a Viking Age blacksmith's equipment (representing the first ironwork used in North America, circa 1000 AD in Vinland).
