Vice Screw Bottle Opener

I root for the underdog.  Here’s a bottle opener made out of the vice screw of a broken bench vice.

It’s triple oil quenched to magnetic North and heat treated with hate.

Flower Trophy

NMM flwr

I was honored once again to be asked to create the “Flower Trophy” (minus the brass name plate) for the flower contest at the 21st annual Northern Minnesota Metalsmiths conference.

I always look forward to seeing all the fantastic metal sculptures that are put on display at our yearly gathering of metal artists.

I will make sure I post a picture of the winner next weekend.

The sunflower sculpture stands 15 inches tall and is forged out of mild steel and copper.  Commissioned by a client in the Sunshine state, Florida.
