Metal sculptor Ira Wiesenfeld, moves a piece of hot steel from a propane forging fire at right, to an anvil where he will continue shaping it to form a lilly pad for a project he's developing in his shop at 1801 W Overton Road, in Tucson, AZ. Wiesenfeld, a retired veterinarian, discovered a passion for art, sculpting and blacksmithing years ago. Now he displays some of his creations in a sculpture garden on his property on Overton Road.
