West Pennant Forge is the culmination of a 30 year dream. I didn't know about Blacksmithing 30 years ago, but I did know I wanted to make art. I learned basic skills from my wonderful mentor, Jerry Levy. His generosity of time and spirit set me on my path to working with metal. I built my shop as a part time enterprise. My "real" career has ended as a result of a head injury. Until that is resolved, I continue to work part time in my shop for therapy and pleasure. My interest is in functional art pieces made out of steel, stainless steel and copper.
