BIO

Christopher Niemer was born with metal in his blood- both his 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. Read more about Chris Niemer's first experiences with blacksmithing, his mantra, and some of his favorite pieces he has created in our blog.
