Jasper Johns Blacksmith Sculpture

Jasper Johns Blacksmith

Ihave been involved with blacksmithing for 15 years, learning as I go. It goes hand in hand with music which I am also apprenticed to but they don't always see eye to eye. One way and another they do actually help each other, I just have to have the patience to wait until they relax.

Having studied archeology and history at York I decided there was no future in archeology, so I concentrated my energies on finding a means of galvanising human conciousness, wherefore I looked into metalwork and music. I appreciate the loyalty of metal in that once you have done something to it, it remains the same. I believe that if people have access to an inner changelessness, they will have the power to evolve.
