Kiran Chapman of Soma Metalwork

I was born and raised in New York City, and moved to Maine in 2018 to learn wooden boat building. I became fascinated by blacksmithing after learning the trade from a local knife maker, and went on to work for Wick’s Forge, a third-generation blacksmith shop. I strive to make long-lasting objects that channel the traditional blacksmithing techniques I’ve learned through a unified aesthetic, creating functional and accessible products.
