James Garvey is a blacksmith with a difference. His love of creating metal sculptures is expressed by his statement, “Blacksmithing involves passion, intellect and full force physical input.” As an instructor in the Art Student League’s metal forging class, he has been an inspiration to his students as well as having an accomplished career as a blacksmith and artist.
