RR Spike Rose

Lots of hammering goes into this particular sculpture.

The entire rose is made from one solid piece of Rail Road Spike.

I was commissioned to make one of these for a woman who’s father was retiring from working on the Rail Road.  It was my pleasure to forge a sentimental sculpture for her to give her father.


Skirt Rings for Blizzard Entertainment.


These are “skirt rings” that are to be part of a fantasy costume.
Don’t feel dumb, I didn’t know what a “skirt ring” was either.
They were a commissioned custom order for Blizzard Entertainment.  A video game company that produces online games such as World of Warcraft and the Diablo series.
One of the joys as a metal artist, is that I never know who is going to contact me or what creative adventure is around the corner.
If you have an unusually creative idea or a design that you would like to have forged into existence, feel free to email me at olsonironworks@gmail.com or call me at 218-686-9164


The “Way-finder Compass”

The Way-finder Compass.
In life, we may know which direction is North. But sometimes, our “life’s compass” doesn’t have a needle to point us in the direction we need to go. Thus we sometimes lose our way and get off the path.

That’s what this “Way-finder Compass” necklace represents to me.

Just like the experiences in our journey through life, it’s a little beat up and also has a few scrapes and dings.
