Mike Edelman designs and creates unique high quality metalwork. All art is one-of-a-kind, hand done by the artist. Edelman specializes in contemporary blacksmithing where the emphasis is on the artistic and creative use of the medium. Works range from garden sculptures and gates, functional furniture, wearable sculpture, and unique metal wall art.
Edelman works for six months a year at Spruce Forest Artisan Village in Grantsville, MD. There he maintains a gallery space and a working blacksmith shop where he produces his metalwork. Several times a year he also uses the smithy to conduct workshops for the general public.
