Metal symposium 2013

Joshua Pennings from the Netherlands was approached in October 2012 as the first of the foreign artists for the Symposium. We were delighted by his decision to take part in the Metal Symposium. For us it meant that our concept could actually succeed in the future and that the Metal Symposium would become a popular and sought after event.

Joshua asked for a forge, a CO2 welding machine, a plasma cutter, an anvil with an extension, and angle grinders. With the materials he had ordered, it was easy to get started immediately. He began working in the basement, but once the weather improved, joined the other artists outdoors. His work is exceptional in that it is a combination of scrap metal and new materials.

After a brief reflection on the title of his work, he called it the "Workingman´s Castle". This caused us a problem, because the literal Czech translation was not exactly what the artist wanted to express.

After a little brainstorming, we came up with a suitable translation, namely the "Craftsman's Castle".

We were glad that Joshua advised us on how to improve the Symposium for participants, and we were delighted to hear he had picked up some skills from fellow blacksmiths.

 His work was installed in the garden of Dr. Pírek's Clinic next to three other works from the first year of the Metal Symposium. In addition to these four works, more than 20 sculptures from the Stone and People Symposium may be admired here, as well as an outdoor exhibition that alternates about three to four times a year.
