As a blacksmith, Elizabeth Brim has forged a place for herself in a male-dominated field. She plays on that contrast in her work with her “unique juxtaposition of the feminine and the ferrous.” Brim has been called a “rebel,” spending her time hammering hot steel while wearing her signature pearls. The resulting forms—a fancy shoe, a lacey camisole, a bench layered in frilly cloth—are decidedly “girly” objects all rendered expertly in hard metal. In this way, she not only makes wonderful and sought-after artistic objects, but also salient social commentary.
