Meta-Formation: Experiments and Rituals

Monica Coyne

Meta-Formation: Experiments and Rituals is opening at the Appalachian Center for Craft, Smithville, TN at 12:00 noon March 14 with a panel discussion preceeding it, that morning at 10:00 am.  Panelists include Zach Lihatsh, Tuscon AZ, Monica Coyne, CA, and Daniel Randall, TN. The Craft Center is a vital meeting place for artisans and makers and one of the few institutions offering blacksmithing as a study focus.  The saying “by hammer and hand all trades do stand” implies blacksmiths are the tool maker for all other makers chisels for the woodworker, snips for the glass artist and garden tools for the gardner, all made by the smith. These tools in the hands of today’s smiths become works of art in and of themselves.  Artists delving deep into community, inclusion, environmental sustainability, and education will ultimately drive changes in the public perception of blacksmithing.
