This bronze sword I made for the exhibition "The Sword - Form and Thought" just arrived at the museum in Solingen, Germany. Here are some photos of making the sword and short description of the ideas behind the design.
a sword for an oak-skinned bronze-age hero, a sword which holds the spirit of light in its pommel. Sharp and balanced, its blade is a golden line of intent.

Back in 2009, a Viking sword I made, with a short video of me making it.

March came, and then April, and still it snowed. Something had to be done. I determined to trap the spirit of winter.

One of the many projects I worked on this winter. A cast bronze and glass cephalopod reliquary in collaboration with my Dad (sculptor) Peter Powning.
