Forging art

    An anvil, a forge, along with steel and copper are usually associated with blacksmithing. Ellen Durkan uses the flame of her forge to twist those materials into a unique mix of Elizabethan and steampunk styles. First Experience found her work on display recently at the Carvel State Office Building in Wilmington. Check out her creative designs.
