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.
I'm very excited to introduce you to my newest line of work which is forged fine art jewelry! For years I have been researching metal forming and this work is some of the most exciting experiments I have ever worked on! Beyond creating new designs, I'm currently creating new metal working techniques and redefining what metal forging on a small scale can be. Check it out. I hope you are as excited about it as I am!
For a current inventory of sculptures, please check here.
Now available, my new book, Experiments In Blacksmithing! Available at Createspace, Amazon and your local bookstore! This book has over 200 images
and takes you on a tour of creative development. This is not a “best of portfolio”, instead it is a book documenting the process of artistic growth and shows work created at various skill levels.
To see fresh work as it is created, follow me on Instagram. For current jewelry creations, please check out my line of jewelry at LadiesofIron.com.
