Copper Smithing

I’ve dabbled in coppersmithing a bit and really enjoyed it. It seemed a little more forgiving than blacksmithing and a little more zen-like as you weren’t in front a screaming hot forge the whole time and it’s quieter.

    My wife and I have dabbled in coppersmithing ourselves – just making some bowls under the watchful eye of Todd Parker, our teacher. Its quite satisfying to make beautiful art with nothing more than fire, a rounded piece of basalt, a sawed-off log used as an anvil, and a copper disk.
