rtist/blacksmith John Stevens just loves to hammer on hot metal! At his forge and studio, The Dancing Hammer, he soulfully designs and crafts a unique and amazing array of metalwork. His creations range from large architectural installations to delicate jewelry.
Surrounded inside and outside of his shop by inspirational metal artifacts of all kinds, forms, and finishes, he feels the metal and becomes the metal as he coaxes pleasing, resonating, and harmonious shapes to emerge from the hot iron and steel.
