Nol Putnam Sold Work
Forged iron and paint
Nol Putnam's new work centers on remembering the carnage of battles in WWI. About these hand forged and painted works he states: "The red poppies are to memorialize the dead on both sides ... "In Flanders Field the poppies grow... The genesis for my display is an outgrowth of international blacksmiths' organizations to recognize the service of blacksmiths and all other soldiers in the battles of Ypres. This Fall of 2016, there will be a new memorial of 2000 poppies made by smiths from around the world to honor the fallen on all sides."
