You may remember that the Clay Spencer Blacksmith shop was dedicated July 18, 2010 (Read the post here). Students and instructors alike have been enjoying classes there since then, but recently two Folk School blacksmith instructors put the finishing touches on the building. Through collaborative efforts, blacksmiths Matt Jenkins and Ted Thompson designed, fabricated, and forged the sign featuring Clay Spencer’s signature that hangs just outside the front entrance.
Despite the particularly challenging task of “forging” Clay’s signature with all its curves and line variation, Matt and Ted were able to create a spectacular piece of art.
Want to see the sign for yoursef? It’s located at the front entrance of the Clay Spencer Blacksmith Shop.
