A gallery of hand-forged chopsticks by artist blacksmith John D. Harvey
Finished these hand-forged chopsticks last night from 304 stainless steel. They’ll go to Heidi Jacobs of Whitehall Pottery in Pittsburgh, PA.
On December 19, 2020, I was a vendor/exhibitor at The Steel Yard’s “Holiday Art Market”, and it was really a great event held in very challenging times. All the pandemic precautions were in place: social distancing, mask wearing, hand sanitizer, and staggered entry of patrons to prevent crowding.
These were forged before tonight’s winter storm. Productive night.
So, the round hole in the cap-lifting tab on this bottle opener was last night’s mistake (at the time a crack/ fissure). A little work with a Dremel tonight and I’m unusually pleased with it now.
Here’s tonight’s hand-forged steel chopsticks (along with an in-process hot shot). Experimenting with the twists at the top is fun.
