Metal and Fire: The Children of Vulcan

Good news, Hephaestus Metals has been invited to be part of a new show at the Nave Gallery! From April 24, 2015 through May 31, 2015 we'll be part of their show "Metal and Fire: The Children of Vulcan." 

Vulcan, the Roman God of fire and metalwork ushered humanity along a blazing path to civilization. From body ornaments and tools, to weaponry and currency, metal and metal workers have shaped an enhanced out lives throughout time. Even today, there are those who still work alongside the heat of the forge, covered in sparkling dust, and breathing in noxious fumes that help shape our world.

Within the language of heat and chemistry, let metal and its fiery transformation take center stage in the alchemy of creation.
