LOCAL | Artist Spotlight – Island Blacksmith | Dave J Friesen

Our group at the HOMELAB is captivated by art in all its forms, and we are particularly inspired by the works of the local artists that we are privileged to have as members of the Qualicum Beach community on Vancouver Island.

For our first local artist spotlight, we wanted to introduce you to one of the most valued creative consultants that we are able to work with, Dave J. Friesen. When we listen to the different art initiatives Dave has been involved with over the years in different places around the world, it is no wonder he always has something to add to a creative conversation.

Dave is a blacksmith and the talented craftsman behind Crossed Heart Forge who creates “traditionally crafted knives for folks who wish they could take things home from museums”. View some of Dave’s works at Crossed Heart Forge or view the latest video spotlight here.

Feel free to stop by the HOMELAB to pick up one of Dave’s contact cards.
