Alum Myers’s Work Published in Ironwork Book
Matt M. Myers, BFA 2004, in metalsmithing and jewelry design. Since graduating Matt has taught himself blacksmithing, welding and forging. He even built his own coal forge and now runs his own studio The Black Toad Forge.
Schiffer Publishing contacted Matt requesting both photographs and a brief explanation of some of his steel sculpture. The six images and descriptions Matt sent were recently published in the book Ironwork Today 3: Inside & Out in a four page spread. Ironwork Today 3 is a collection of over 450 vivid color photos providing a sweeping overview of an amazing range of iron artwork being created by 82 of today’s artist-blacksmiths.
The images submitted were taken by Western Illinois University’s own photographer, Larry Dean. Congratulations to Matt M. Myers and a special thanks to Larry Dean.
