Gallery: Blacksmithing in Camp Verde

Brett Moten, master blacksmith and nationally known instructor from Reno, Nevada, was the guest of honor at the Arizona Artist Blacksmith Association (AABA) gathering held at Fort McDowell Place in Camp Verde over the weekend. Moten, who was recently named Best of Show Artist at Blacksmiths of North America, demonstrated a number of forging techniques, including tooling and joinery. AABA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating others and sharing information about the art of blacksmithing. Bill Morris has been sponsoring the popular gathering in Camp Verde for a number of years. For more information, view the AABA website www.az-blacksmiths.org. VVN/Jon Pelletier
