I use Earth elements (Copper, Silver, Beryllium, Bismuth, Fire and Wind), sculpting techniques developed by myself, and Old World metalsmithing techniques to create some of the finest hand-forged architectural elements, especially weathervanes. The process is done entirely free-hand, without the use of moulds, stamps, or machines. It takes an average of 80 - 450 hours, depending on the size and complexity of the design, to create each piece. The end result is a unique work of art that will someday be worth a fortune as an antique--an investment in fine art that your family will enjoy for generations.
