BIO

Christopher Niemer was born with metal in his blood, both father and grandfather were machinists. Chris has been forging for ten years, the last five doing commissioned pieces in his own smithy. “For me, metalsmithing is a form of alchemy, forging the past into the future using the tools that are present.” Committed to helping youth forge their own destinies, Chris is participating in establishing a youth program at The Crucible.
