Jennifer DePollo Horn, Farrier and Artist Blacksmith
Jennifer DePollo Horn, and her associate blacksmith, Bill Palmer have completed a massive set of iron flower sculptures to grace the entrance to a new city park in Lapeer, Michigan. The park is characterized as a ‘pocket park’ due to it’s location between two buildings in downtown Lapeer.
Working throughout the past winter the two artist blacksmiths forged the massive flowers. Work took place in the blacksmith shops of both these artists. Jennifer’s ‘Daisy Hill Forge’ in the far north at the eastern end of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and Bill Palmer’s ‘Steel Rose Forge’, located much closer to Lapeer, in Columbiaville, Michigan.
Along with the massive flowers there is also a fence designed as gnarly vines. There are a few other features within the park grounds.
