Meet the People


Erik has been a blacksmith for more than 20 years. After he received his artistic training at the Penland School of Craft, he apprenticed with artist blacksmiths Paul Thorne and Rusell Jacqua in the Pacific Northwest. He founded Newquist Forge in 2016. When he isn't creating dozens of woks or sculptures, he's in a boat with his little boy on Mystery Bay.


Radha Newsom focuses on function and design, product photography, and communications, and test drives Newquist garden tools in her large vegetable gardens and the cookware in her kitchen. In her free time, she creates baskets from willow and red cedar bark.
