Rytis Navasaitis

Metal is extremely mysterious and unpredictable. Sometimes it is soft and flexifle like plasticine, sometimes hard and unbendable. Rytis Navasaitis believes that it depends on blacksmiths mood and state of mind.

Artist claims that individual blacksmiths style is being developed through entire life and changes at different periods of time.

Rytis admits that he does not like strict canons of classical smithery. He enjoys forging oval forms, motives of flora and fauna.

Smithery to Rytis is a way of life and source of living. Sometimes it requires more creativity, sometimes more skills. And this variety makes smithery more irterestig.
