Kent Knapp has been studying blacksmithing since he was 19 years old. He worked with a master blacksmith for a few years in Milwaukee and now runs a traditional blacksmithing business that involves his wife and 4 children. A huge part of the draw to this art form for the family is Kent’s love for Milwaukee architecture and its rich history with iron. Now Kent expresses his passion for Milwaukee’s history by designing his own ironworks.
