The Emmy-nominated and Peabody Award-winning CRAFT IN AMERICA, now in its fifth season, promotes and advances original handcrafted work and inspires people of all ages to pursue their own creativity.
“Forge” profiles exceptional artists who are working in what may be the only tangible example of “alchemy” we have — the forging of metal magically transformed by fire. Follow young Chloe Darke as she begins her career as a silversmith at Old Newbury Crafters; Iraqi war veterans Tom Pullin and Jeremiah Holland as they turn to art as an antidote to the harsh realities of war; and Albert Paley, master metal sculptor, who uses knowledge from his 50-year career to build monumental artworks for New York City’s Park Avenue.
