For the past 21 years, Joe Piela has made armour, swords, and metal art for collectors and reenactors. He got his start in metalworking from his Grandfather Michael Piela, who learned much about blacksmithing at the Piela family blacksmith shop in Tylawa, Poland. Residing in Northeast Pennsylvania, Joe has made armour and swords for reenactors and collectors all over the US, in Canada, and Europe.
Joe's favorite metal work project was a silver chalice that he made for a friend who is a Catholic Priest, who uses the chalice during the Catholic Mass.
Joe's interest in artwork also includes sculpting resin kits of epic fantasy figures, and making stop motion animation films.
