Thank you to Andy and the team at Big Blu Hammer for their partial sponsorships of their Powerhammer machines, Blacksmithing Hammers, and Powerhammer Dies, and for sharing their expertise! McKenzie's favorite shop babies include two of Big Blu's Big Max 155 powerhammers (lovingly named "Ollie" and "Sully") - one being custom-made with a whopping 36" throat! She not only uses these mighty machines to create her giant steel molds for her pewter pieces, but also for every other traditional blacksmithing and forging needs.
Thank you to Barb and the rest of the team at Mayer Alloys for their generous metal ingot donation! Mayer Alloys donated 25 pounds of their amazing Britannia pewter to McKenzie's 2017 Gesture (of a) Table piece.
