John Is the resident blacksmith at Jackson County Green energy park, a unique venture housed within a restored Dillsboro warehouse, where green building infrastructure reduces the facility's carbon footprint. Methane off-gassed from a landfill is harnessed to power state-of-the-art studio space for crafters like John. He is the only blacksmith int he country to employ this technology in his trade.
John has explored horticulture, woodworking and metalworking. In his studio he crafts ironwork pieces that are both beautiful and practical for the home and garden. He also crafts custom pieces incorporating iron, copper, steel and wood for indoor and outdoor use to compliment a natural lifestyle.
The Gallery carries his hand forged butter spreaders and unique bowls.
