Debbie Bzdyl | Hephaestus: God of the Forge
Hephaestus was known as the god of fire and patron of blacksmiths, metalworking, and sculpture. He, along with Athena, taught men the arts.
I’ve always been intrigued by the stories of the Greek gods and goddesses. These myths tell stories of an ancient culture where the lives of humans and deities were completely intertwined. Their gods offered a way of explaining events that were hard to understand. Depicting these deities using abstract compositions is my way of bringing the spirit of classical myth into the twenty-first century.
