We had our very first Hammer In last weekend and we had a blast! It was a laid back day of fun and friends, fire, hammer, steel, and pizza!
Check out the gallery below!
The day's kill!
Master blade-smith and instructor at Metal Shop Fantasy Camp, Theo Nazz, who just won the History Channel's most recent episode of Forged in Fire, did a demonstration and showcased some of his work. You can see more of Theo's beautiful custom blades at http://www.theorocknazz.com/
Master blacksmith, Kyle McCormick, did a demonstration as well. We were very excited to have Kyle, as he has worked for such notable blacksmithing and design companies as Spirit Ironworks, Art and Anvil Liberty Inc., Argosy Designs, and also as an artist assistant to a Dumbo-based sculptor.
Nikki Ordonez also showcased her work! Born and raised in NY, Nikki is a high end architectural fabricator who also makes art and jewelry out of scrap to give her work a textured, very raw, rustic and organic feel. Follow Nikki on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/rose_riot/?hl=en
