Single piece 12ga Steel Frog
I hand raised this frog from a single piece of 12ga sheet steel. Using heat, pitch, chasing chisels, and raising stakes I took a 4x5inch rectangle of sheet and shaped it into a 3x3x3inch frog. Heavily inspired by Sobi Yamada's work and the desire to pay homage to his work and spirit. I will tackle more work like this in the future as I become more practiced.
I think I posted a walk through on the forging and chasing, if you'd like to see it or more of my work:……

I'm thinking of getting into metal work and was wondering if you could give me any advice to help kick me off the mark.

How did you learn metalwork? Do you offer classes?
TimeTurbine Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Took basic metal working classes, listened to anyone who would give me advice, looooooots of trial and error. Practice and patience. And as of now no. I don't have the facility nor the expertise...or a large enough portfolio to think about offering classes, But if you'd like I'll keep you in mind if I start teaching folk.

Please do. I'm always interested in learning.
TimeTurbine Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Will do then! cheers man.
