L Brent Kington is a name synonymous with modern day Blacksmithing. Not only has his pioneering work in this field given him a place in history, but it has also helped put Carbondale and Southern Illinois University on the map as a Mecca where metalsmiths can congregate. On this program, and also on the next edition of WSIU InFocus, we will hear over and over again about Kington’s profound influence on metal smithing. Let’s start by meeting this man in a segment that was originally produced for a statewide broadcast of Arts Across Illinois.
