D.J. Blanton is a retired power company worker living in rural Indiana. In the fifteen years since leaving the job he hated, D.J. has thrown himself headlong into his practice as a blacksmith, building thousands of ironwork pieces in his home shop. A Life’s Work considers the intersection of art and life—the curiosities we are born with and the legacies we leave behind.
