The other day I was working on a candle holder, that is going to be an Xmas present for someone (can’t say who, they might be listening :P).
As I was thinning and stretching the candle cups I noticed something strange begin to happen. The piece was a dull red and cooling. With each blow of the hammer, the metal would flash to a bright orange. I was hammering so hard and so fast that to metal was actually getting hotter under the hammer!
I’ve only seen this happen on three occasions before, once in a video by Uri Hofi, once in a demo by one of my teachers, and once with a friend of mine and I. (we hammered a piece of 1/2 square from cold to cherry, but that’s another story)
I guess there really is a reason some people call me Thor!
Magnus and I this weekend are planning on photographing some more of the work that we’ve been doing this weekend! Hope to have it up by Sunday!
lollingaboot asked: I was thinking the twisted metal sort that sits around the neck with maybe raven decorations on the tips? I could probably find an example with something similar somewhere… (moved it to another ask so it would be easier to find.)
We’ll try and come up with a basic design, figure out the cost and tell you an estimate. :)
lollingaboot asked: If I wanted to have a custom torc forged, could you give me an estimate of the cost? I was thinking brass for material.
It depends, what style of torc do you want? Any ideas on designs?
A big thank you to all the people following us!
It means a lot to us that all of you follow us and enjoy our art. We haven’t been the best at thanking you individually, so decided to thank all of you wonderful people at once.
Keep being awesome!
