In this week’s CRAFT Video, Meg Allan Cole and I took a trip to Brooklyn’s She-Weld studio for a special blacksmithing lesson from Alex Himmelbaum. He showed us how to taper and decoratively curl the end of a steel rod and rivet it to a hammered backplate. It’s the burliest paper towel holder we’ve seen, forged from hot steel. Head over to CRAFT for more photos.
