Have you ever heard of Hephaistos? He is the Greek God of the forge and fire. Hephaistos is the same God which the Romans called "Vulcan." The Hephaistos magazine is a German professional metalsmithing periodical that is distributed in Germany and the US six times a year.

Following is a listing of the feature articles which have been translated and reprinted by the ArtMetal Project. You also shouldn't miss "Schaufenster" - literally show-window. A better translation in the context would be "showcase". It is Hephaistos's way of showing individual artists work.
