Roger Williams' Profile

About

My name is Roger Williams and I have worked with metals for about 35 years...mostly self taught. by reading and trial and error. I started working with wrought iron and copper. I moved to Alaska in 1980 from my native Indiana and learned to work with gold and silver which were my main focus for the next 20 years. About 10 years ago I took up copper again and recently iron. Spoons,and ladles have been my mainstay lately. Everything is handmade by me . The only power tools I use are for polishing. I hand forge and fabricate in sterling silver, nickel silver, copper and iron. I live with my wife and children in Gustavus, a village of about 400 people 50 miles west of Juneau, reached only by boat or plane, It is known as an artist community and is the gateway to Glacier Bay National Park. We love the tranquility and remoteness of our home and a handmade business fits in well... so thanks for your interest
