ABOUT PERSIMMON
FORGE STUDIO


Artist blacksmith David Edwards and assistant Ken Johnson operate the studio while Betty Edwards attends to the business details. Private commissions make up the majority of our work. Occasionally we participate in a living history demonstration and do some teaching for beginning blacksmiths. Our current emphasis is on producing pieces with organic or botanical motif elements trying to incorporate chasing/repousee techniques when possible. We prefer to
limit our work to interior ironwork pieces. We do a small amount of working with “mixed metal” pieces (bronze, copper and mild steel).

Philosophically we strive to design projects which make the construction process pleasurable and challenging for us and the end result a lasting pleasure for our client. We emphasize contemporary design mixed with traditional techniques when possible. Our work proceeds as a labor of love taking us wherever it leads.

The stylized persimmon serves as our studio logo and a touchmark which signs our work. The artist initials and year of completion are often stamped in addition.
