Forging Art: Nol Putnam, Artist Blacksmith is a 30-minute video produced by fellow Rappahannock residents Tracy and Mathieu Mazza. Viewers will be transported inside White Oak Forge, where Putnam employs centuries-old techniques to make art out of iron and steel. Over four decades, Nol has bent metal into iconic pieces, like his trio of Gates for the West Crypt Columbarium at the Washington National Cathedral, his whimsical indoor sculptures, and colorful Poppies, in honor of the Farriers who served in WWI. Enjoy Putnam’s fascinating talk on art, mythology, and making metal move!
