Buddy Holmes is the owner of Waterfall Forge and has been making copper waterfalls, garden fountains and other copper art for homes and businesses for over 18 years. His work has been recognized nationally on Home and Garden Televisions "Modern Masters" series. One of Buddy’s fountains and sugar kettles will be the center feature on an upcoming show on the DIY Network. He has demonstrated his craft for the Mississippi Forge Council's Annual Conference and was one of the main demonstrators at the Alabama Forge Councils' Tannehill Annual Conference. The Tannehill Conference is one of the largest gatherings of metalsmiths and blacksmiths in the United States. A nice article was written about his work in Country Roads magazine December 2010;  click here to visit the article. Another article and pictures were featured in the “Anvils Ring” magazine of the Artists Blacksmith Association of North America a few years ago. His last workshop was done in Panama City, Florida June 2010. Buddy's shop is always open for people who would like to visit and watch work being done or would like to learn to work with copper themselves. (please call ahead) This is the Waterfall Forge studio (shop) in Prairieville, LA. It is nestled in amongst the trees and surrounded by a small bayou. Alongside and below this picture are some photos of blacksmiths, metalsmiths and customers who come by from time to time plus a few pics of me.
