Announcement   "A Touch of History Through Modern Art"
We the artists behind Dverger's Anvil create our works with inspiration drawn from the legends and tales of cultures passed. Whether Norse, Egyptian, Celtic, or whatever mythos has caught our eye at the time, each part of the larger piece is symbolic in a way that gives more depth and understanding to the stories we re-tell.
What do we make, you may be asking. The answer is simple: Everything. While most of what we create are drinking horns, we also make jewelry, kitchen novelties such as cookie cutters, carved staves and bowls, and so much custom work that our skill list is always expanding.
There are two things that should be noted about our work. One, all of the metal we use contains the element copper, a large portion of which is recycled. For over 5,000 years, copper has been sought after for its utilitarian, medicinal, and ceremonial values. It is also known as one of the seven metals of alchemy, giving it a high standing in the metaphysical world, and it's been said that Dverger (Dwarves in Norse) have a preference for working with copper over other metals.
Two, and probably the coolest thing about our art, is that it's handmade. We make everything, right down to the rivets in our horns and chains on our jewelry. Nothing cast. Nothing stamped. Unless we do it ourselves. This gives us a lot of versatility in our custom orders as well, so if you have something in mind you want made, contact us and we'll see what we can do.

-About the Artists-
Hello! My name is Skeggjadr, one half of the father-son duo behind Dverger's Anvil. In a world of mass produced, disposable things, we believe not only in the quality of handmade wares, but in the value of the skill to make these things.
My great-uncle, Silver Buffalo, used to travel the Powow circuits making and selling handmade silver jewelry. He taught my father his skills. My father, Asgasti, went on to make and sell Native American style art on consignment back in the 80's.
He taught me everything I know. He also taught me how important it is to not let this trade fade away into history. So, in a world of single use items and 3D printers, it's my turn to carry the torch of the craftsman's trade until it is my turn to pass it on.
