Artisan

An enlargement really does wonders for this piece of art that hangs on the back deck. Anthony is a skilled silversmith by trade, but really the guy can do anything. He's a skilled craftsman who can tackle anything from a malfunctioning water heater in the basement of his home to the exquisite intricacies  of trophies like the Kick-Off Classic at Giant Stadium to many well-known and celebrated horse races around the country. This piece used to grace a wall of his home in Jersey, and I was some excited when he offered it to us to take North. It's one of my favorite pieces of his. Although as we speak, he's somewhere on a river cruise in France, he's always close to us, especially when I gaze to this wall.
