Hummingbird plant hanger

Hummingbird plant hanger

This is a design that I actually did a few years ago and just finally got around to making one.
It's fun sketching in steel.
The eye and other feather-like things are split out. Height is 24", sticks out from the wall 12"


hello and question about who buys this stuff

Hi gang,
I hope I'm posting to the right place. This is my first time using the forum and unsure but here goes.
I am an artist blacksmith residing and working in Knoxville, TN. I've been a blacksmith off and on since 1979 but mostly as a hobby except for a while during 2000 to 2004 when I tried making money at it. Now I have jumped in the deep end of the pool and hope to make a living from it. I have hooked up with a bunch named SCORE which is a group of retired business people who donate their time to act as mentors for people like me. I understand the basics of business because we ran our own electronics design consulting business for six years. What I don't understand is how to advertise and market my fine hand forged ironwork. We know that craft shows are not necessarily the best way from previous experience. But galleries seem to charge large amounts (in one case 60% !) for selling my work and they get a commission for anything I sell within 100 miles of them.

It's here! My forge from NC TOOL CO. It's pretty much the most bad a** thing ever! I'm super stoked. And it's going to make this new year all the better. If you haven't seen or used a forge from NC TOOL, it's quality stuff. Highly recommended!


California Forging

| | | | | | | | | |

Hello everybody, I've been looking around here for a couple hours now and I'm pretty happy to find a site that brings so many talented metalsmiths together! I've just finished my service enlistment and have been forging my own knives and nick-nacks for about a year now. I would really like to work for a professional forge if there is work/help needed in the southern California area. Maybe you, or someone you know is in a situation to take on a hard worker and motivated learner? Thanks for reading, Happy New Year!

Hello,

I am just joining this community and look forward to interacting and networking with you all. Hopefully, some of you will know me and I look forward to reacquainting with you and to meeting new metalworkers. I am an 18 generation blacksmith and have been forging for over 17 years, taught internationally and have been published in numerous books and periodicals.
