My name is Atticus McFadden-Keesling and depending on whom you ask I am either a blacksmith or a mad scientist… and in some circles an acrobat. Blacksmithing is more than just a job to me it is my art form and my passion. I have worked and studied in many different shops in Michigan and across the country in order to further my craft.
What sets my work apart is that I try and let the organic movement that comes naturally from the process of forging influence my designs. Metal is a fascinatingly plastic material, and under the right circumstances it moves like clay. Check out my portfolio here.
