About The Instuctor
Joe has been forging metal for over 30 years. With much of his ironwork, the forging processes are apparent. For instance, all work is hand-forged iron; featuring traditional joinery techniques such as collaring, tenons and riveting that are a celebrated part of each design. With hand-forging, the artist is able to add a personal touch, which means that each piece will be a unique rare work of art that will be used and enjoyed forever.
