John Medwedeff has been creating beautiful metal sculptures in Murphysboro since he first opened the doors of Medwedeff Forge and Design in 1988.
Medwedeff, who originally moved to southern Illinois to complete his Master’s Degree in metalsmithing at SIUC, caters to a wide variety of customers that range from corporations to city governments to private individuals. Medwedeff says he began to blacksmith at 19 but knew what he wanted to do from the age of seven. “It’s definitely a lifelong passion,” said Medwedeff.
