Master Metalsmith Show 

When: Aug. 28-Nov. 8 2009

Metal stilettos and iron-encrusted tiaras are a two of Elizabeth Brim’s favorite things. Brim will be the National Ornamental Metal Museum’s Master Metalsmith for 2009, from August 28th to November 8th.

Brim is a well-known blacksmith in North Carolina. She is an instructor at the Penland School of Crafts in Penland, North Carolina. Originally from Georgia, she received her Master’s of Fine Arts from the University of Georgia in print making.

In 1988, an iron pair of high-heeled shoes won her first prize in the Artist Blacksmith’s Association of North America Southeastern Regional Conference. Her femininity shows through her work. Brim transitioned from tool-making to creating pieces of work personal to her. At the exhibit you can see such ironwork as aprons, tutus, handbags, and pillows.
