Handforged Art: 


'Fire In His Blood'

By Aimee O'Grady, Broad Run Lifestyle Magazine, April 2016

"The buzz of a saw cutting through raw iron, the boom of a power hammer exerting a force of 1,800 pounds with every blow, the whir of an electric fan in the flue of the coal forge waking a sleeping fire, the melodic beat of a hammer skipping on an anvil as it molds and bends a piece of heated iron."

Review by Beautiful Nights

Professional Outdoor Lighting & Landscape Solutions, April 2017

"..I was lucky enough to find Joe Sitton, a local farrier and iron artisan, who hand crafted a pair of beautiful rings that I will be installing.."

"..Just beautiful! Enjoy his work and if you really want a piece of art for a gate or stair or just a piece of art to hang, look at Joe's work."

'Blacksmith Artist Strikes While Iron Is Hot'

By Amy Joyce, The Washington Post, November 2003
