A sectional shot showing a technique of execution using a combination of very hot steel and the power hammer.
This is what I call hammered Art, which technically speaking is a combination of white hot steel and a power hammer with the strength of two men, a controlled flow of pressure and team work. Every direction is captured and frozen in time with no room for error.
As a private commission for Morzine, French Alps, 2009, made by Andy Quirk and one of his best friends Rigger Gambel.
