I am super excited to bring you a sweet giveaway today, and to introduce you to an awesome Iowan artist who is hand forging lovely kitchen tools that you seriously need.
You know how every family seems to have that one person who is just really freaking talented at something? That's totally my brother for my family. I remember when he was in middle school we watched this PBS special on Ancient Warfare or something like that - ok, so knowing my parents it wasn't on warfare exactly, but whatever. The point is that after watching this special, and without any prior knowledge, Richard went outside and built a fill-scale working trebuchet. No help from instructions, my dad, nothing. He watched the show. He built it. And we flung pumpkins and 2 liter bottles full of water all over the dang neighborhood. It was so amazing. That's like, just the way his brain works. He just understands how to make things work. If he doesn't have a certain tool, he makes it. If he needs a part, or a really expensive machine, he creates one out of scraps and random bits he finds. And they work! I'm pretty much in awe of this kid.
He is no longer flinging pumpkins around the neighborhood, but he is creating amazing art and forging kitchen gadgets out of recycled metal, and it is so cool! He has created chef knives, herb choppers, corkscrews, steak turners and more out of recycled vintage metal such as old files and railroad spikes. Each piece is hand forged using traditional blacksmithing techniques, and each piece carries uniquely custom characteristics.
Every single piece has been tested to ensure functionality - that it fits in the hand well and that it operates as designed. And I'm not just saying this as his sister - I am saying this as a person who spends a lot of time in the kitchen and someone who truly appreciates unique and thoughtful gifts. These items are awesome, and you are going to want them.
If you are looking for unique, functional and gorgeously simplistic kitchen gadgets, you definitely need to check out RWrightStudios on Etsy. These items make amazing gifts for that foodie friend, that hard to buy for person who has everything, or even yourself! They work
I am so super excited not only to show off my kid brother to you, but also to show you these awesome kitchen gadgets, AND to bring you a sweet giveaway you are definitely going to want to win! ONE lucky person is going to win a sweet hand forged herb chopper from RWrightStudios and some secret special goodies that I am going to add in myself!
