        Chloe Darke: Function and Expression in Metalsmithing | Craft in America

        Chloe Darke: Function and Expression in Metalsmithing explores the work of Chloe Darke featured in the FORGE episode. The craft of silversmithing in New England existed even before America's most patriotic silversmith, Paul Revere, made his famous ride. Old Newbury Crafters in Amesbury, Massachusetts was one of the best at the time. Fourteen generations later, it is now in the capable hands of a young metal artist, Chloe Darke. She leads the company in hand forging extraordinary objects and declares "there's a rebirth of craft for people in my generation who are interested in traditional ways of making things."
