Kriev's "Bringer of Light" Wall Sconce
Forged for the Toronto Craft Ontario Showcase Nov. 2014.
Kriev designed and forged this one-of-a-kind sconce using traditional joinery.
(No electric welding).
Carol forges a custom Candelabra.
Kriev helping me forge the bottom flat while punching holes.
Decided to stop fighting the urge to incorporate MIG welding. I had the goal of creating a blacksmithed candelabra without any modern techniques... why when modern is what I do? I embraced it and even made welding some of the key decorative elements.
For this twist,
I hammered down three corners
and chiseled three lines before twisting (one or two hours later).
All squeaky clean - one of the simple things needing to be done...
the treasure chest under the roots. One of the decorative welding elements I mentioned above.
What a wonderful project :)
I call the Candelabra "Water Catcher".
Kriev forges an UGG!
An amazing creature from local author Duncan Weller's book: The Ugg and the Drip.Kriev made some tongs to hold the Ugg. My Nephew didn't want to let go of that adorable creature!

-14 Basket Twists,
-12 Brackets (including all Rivets..some brackets had three)
-1 steel grate
-the Elfarrow Sign (and hand painted "apparel")
-3 steel boxes (one so large it had to come apart to get it through the door-Thanks Tanya for helping!),
-4 Butterfly Hooks
-2 pyramid shelves
Together we also made a set of two steel stands with a crossbar, installed the sign as well as all brackets inside. What a fun Project! Thanks Kyley for the inspiring opportunity. And today for requesting us make the odd item here and there ;)

Now Let's make 3 cubes!
My friend and helper Tanya :)
The largest box had to be engineered so that it could fit through the doorway to Elfarrow. All boxes fit inside one another.
