Visiting with the Iron Worker in his workshop

Philip Simmons the best known Iron worker in Charleston, SC (Perhaps in the south) at his anvil with me the abstract metal sculptor. He started working at age 13 as an apprentice shoeing horses, he says the automobile almost put them out of business. He turned to making forged iron gates, fences and ornamental iron. He will be 92 soon and spent 78 years working at what he loved doing. Who would want to retire from that? Forged steel abstractions may be in my future.

Finished it continues to inspire viewers to reach for the music within themselves. This abstract metal sculpture was commissioned for a private residence on Fripp Island in SC
