Metal Works by Alex Gleason

Alex is a machinist and metalsmith of Chelsea, Michigan. He is also a longtime friend and fellow swordplay enthuisast who has been teaching himself advanced techniques used mostly to reward his friends and loved ones.
I volunteered to photograph his work to make sure there would be a record of his artistry. Once I created my own website, it was a simple step to add this special gallery, which also provides added examples of my photography – except the last one. That's me in the helmet.
The Gallery photos allow you to enlarge each picture to screen size.

Gallery 1: Pat’s Rapier

2006, hilt only for a fencing rapier

Gallery 2: Curved Rapier

Handle is stacked leather, pommel is a wolf’s head.

Gallery 3: Alex's Sword

2014 He finally did something for himself. OMG. Carved steel!

Gallery 4: Other Things

Jewelry items smaller than a penny, a helmet harger than your head.
