Demonstrator - Blacksmith Mark Aspery
Mark Aspery began to forge metal in a high school metalwork room in the UK in 1974. He was fascinated by the ability to shape metals with heat so after high school he started as a blacksmith with Charles Watts and Sons in the UK. During that time, Mark dabbled in natural forms while continuing with traditional designs. He came to develop his own style, which is one of a semi-literal, flowing representation of the natural world. He prefers to use traditional methods of joinery in his work, as the design allows. Mark is now a European journeyman blacksmith, currently an Associate of the Worshipful Company of Blacksmiths (AWCB), established in the United Kingdom in 1325 by Edward II as a blacksmiths guild. Mark currently owns and operates the Mark Aspery School of Blacksmithing based in Springville, CA.
