The 5th Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference is about to begin. Let's set the backdrop. We're at the Center for Metal Arts in the small town of Florida in downstate New York. Absolutely beautiful setting. This is what it looks like this morning.
Come on in...
This is also the home of Fine Architectural Metalsmiths. Walk upstairs to their museum / showroom to see an amazing collection of metal work. Very inspiring stuff, so let's go up.
We're introducing ourselves now. More in an hour or two so stop back.

I wish I could be there. If you come to California I'll be there in a minute. Would love to learn folding from the master.

Sue- So great to see shots of FAM museum work. It's so gratifying to know there are folks still doing this work. The hand, the eye, the heart and soul is in every piece. And we have gotten so far away from seeing it daily.

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
See how it all
