L. Brent Kington began as a silversmith, but after visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s armor collection, decided to explore traditional blacksmithing. His work ranges from small jewelry and toys to monumental moving sculptures. In 2000, Kington was the recipient of the American Craft Council’s Gold Medal. He taught art at Southern Illinois University for thirty-six years, where he founded the blacksmithing program.
