Artist-blacksmith David Little of Meredith, NH and his Winnipesaukee Forge crew will appear on New Hampshire Chronicle this coming Wednesday to give the public a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of forging metals into beautiful works of art. The show will air on WMUR Channel 9 on March 4th at 7pm, and can also be seen online at New Hampshire Chronicle’s website after March 8th.

David Little shared Winnipesaukee Forge’s story and demonstrated blacksmithing during WMUR’s visit. The work that Winnipesaukee Forge creates spans an array that includes fine furniture, lighting, drapery hardware, decorative accessories, and fire screens and hearth products. In addition, the Forge produces beautiful architectural installations such as handrails, gates, and other pieces. Much of this work shows David’s focus on “reinterpreting nature in forged steel.” Designs that incorporate leaves and vines as well as scrolls and flourishes give the work its signature esthetic.

David’s story can be read in an earlier post at this link.

Winnipesaukee Forge is located on the campus of The Arts Collaborative, co-owned by David and his wife, Heidi. As part of her visit, Erin Ferlau of WMUR toured the Arts Collaborative gallery and design showroom and the art-teaching studio. The Littles have drawn on their growing network of the finest regional artisans to assemble an exceptional body of work created in complementary materials, including iron, wood, copper, blown glass, ceramics, acrylic paintings, serigraph prints, and much more.

The Arts Collaborative and Winnipesaukee Forge also serve the artistic, design, decorative, and home furnishing needs of the most discerning home owners, builders, architectural and design professionals, and business owners. Work displayed onsite is available for purchase or can be custom ordered to a client’s design preferences and space needs.

David Little will also be showing Winnipesaukee Forge’s work at the Paradise City Arts Festival in Marlborough, Massachusetts March 20th through March 22nd.  His work is also part of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse’s lobby. “Black Sailboat,” a collaborative work with Steven Hayden (www.haydenarts.com), is featured prominently on the Meredith Sculpture Walk.
