Photos from the 2012 and 2013 Arctic Fires.
Arctic Fire is gathering of swordsmiths in Anchorage, Alaska. The events are live broadcast on-line, and later available as videos. In 2012 the event featured presentations by each smith on elements of the craft. In 2013, we collaborated to build an artifact blade, and had some fun with giving it away (see ArcticFire2013.com). In 2016 we are re-creating the fabled hoard of Grendel from the epic poem, Beowulf.
