Forging Demo by David Brunetta

I stayed up too late last night and I'm paying for it now. Why or why can't I leave the Etsy chatroom?

This Sat. I 'm going to the David Brunetta Studio to watch some forging. You can watch a video of David in action here: SculpturesbyDavid on his brand new website.

I hope it's a cool day. Working with a forge warms things up quick. David has many pieces on display in Laguna Beach. He used to be in a lot of galleries but now he is swamped with custom orders. He does all kinds of gates, benches, and abstract and realistic sculptures. But he also makes wooden bows that are fully functional and has made a fair number of knives in his day. It's always a pleasure to pick his brain.
