Edward Pelton is an artist blacksmith from Ivy, Virginia. He found his love for working with hot metal quite by accident. He had a summer job twenty two years ago helping in a blacksmith studio. When he saw sparks fly as hammer hit hot metal, it was love at first sight and Edward has never looked back.
Much of Edward's work is large scale, site specific architectural pieces made from both ferrous and non ferrous metals such as steel, copper, and bronze. Texture plays a large role in the appeal of his work. He also collaborates with woodworkers to design furniture and other pieces for the home.
Edward's studio is on his family farm in Ivy, in a barn that he built with his dad.
