BATH, Maine (AP) - Art tools created by a journalist who gave up his career to become a blacksmith are going on display this month at the Maine Maritime Museum.
Ray Larsen won a Pulitzer Prize for public service in 1970 as part of an investigative team at Newsday on Long Island, New York. He also created a one-man tool factory, Genuine Forgery, on the Indian Head River in South Hanover, Massachusetts, on the site of one of America’s earliest forging operations.
The exhibit in Bath, Maine, features nine tools carved by Larsen that reveal shapes drawn from objects in nature like the nautilus, manta ray and horseshoe crab. The items are to go on display on July 17 and will be at the museum through mid-October in the Kramer Gallery.
