This week, we begin a series of four profiles on the Strecker family of artists with a visit to Erika Strecker, a Lexington blacksmith and sculptor who makes metal look as malleable as clay. Her functional and decorative art was seen at the 2003 Bernheim Forest exhibit Forging in Ancient Appalachia, held in conjunction with a Kentucky Blacksmith Association regional conference.
