From the Artist:

"All of my products are made by me in my shop in Indiana. I heat the items in a forge, and then using hand hammers and a power hammer, I forge the item to near shape. Then, I finish the products by grinding, sanding, applying a patina or painting, and coating. Some of my products get a heat treatment to harden them as well. Most of the equipment in my shop was made by me, including the power hammer. All of my products are slightly unique, as each is made by my hand and eye. No two will ever be exactly alike. No dies that make a stamped shape are ever used. I forge with a coal forge or propane forge depending on the item and most are forged at 2200F."
