A Life's Work

A Life's Work ( 18 mins / 16mm / 2011 )

In the fifteen years since leaving the job he hated, D.J. Blanton has thrown himself into his practice as a blacksmith, building thousands of pieces in his home shop. A Life’s Work considers the intersection of art and life—the curiosities we are born with and the legacies we leave behind.
