Great Blue

Boleslaw Kochanowski

Great Blue, by Boleslaw Kochanowski of Junction City, Wisconsin, is made of custom handforged wrought iron. It is located along the north entrance drive at West Bend Mutual Insurance Company. Kochanowski learned ironworking under the guidance of his father, a second-generation master blacksmith of Poland, and from studying wrought-iron artistry in Europe and the United States. He works with creative vision, hammering yellow hot-iron into time-transcending works of art.
