The ancient traditions of weaving iron and steel into swords have been shrouded in myth. Twisted cores, and folded edges once lended the wielder strength and power in battle. Blodida, one Poet called these patterns- “Blood eddies”. “The Knotted Wyrm” is also a reference to these poetic descriptions of the thousand year old Germanic process as well as to the Northern European artistic traditions, which depict woven serpents and gripping beasts. Swords are symbols, as well as objects. In my work, I hope, not to reproduce, but to ignite the same feelings as can be felt in the objects made by long-dead craftsman. Thanks for visiting my site, I hope you see or read something interesting, or perhaps come away with a piece to call your own.
