Artist Blacksmith

25 01 2010

It’s been around a year since I’ve posted here. What have I been doing in the meantime? Well, I quit my job last spring and went to Europe for six months to learn more blacksmithing. It was an epic adventure, spanning ten countries, several festivals, and hundreds of international blacksmith friends. I visited places as far apart and diverse as Ukraine, Finland, England, and Italy.

Since arriving in the States, I’ve been working to set myself up as an artist blacksmith. I’m working on a website. It’s not done yet, but I’ve got a little teaser for you here:

Robot, plugged in

This robot was accepted into the “I… You… We… Robot” show at the Space 242 gallery in Boston. If you’re local, you should show up for the opening, this Friday (29.01.10) from 6pm-8pm! I’ll be there. Don’t forget to RSVP!

If you are interested in ornamental ironwork, handmade art such as lamps, gates, fences, furniture, or sculpture, give me an e-mail. Blacksmith at jacoblefton.com, and I’ll get back to you!

I’ll definitely be posting here about more of my adventures in both the professional blacksmithing, art, and design world, and the science fiction world! Keep reading :)
