#366Hooks is an exhibition of work from one (leap) year in the life of blacksmith Matt Jenkins of Cloverdale Forge. In this collection, the hook is both motif and muse for Jenkins as he seeks creative inspiration through a “hook-a-day” project he could sink his hammer into. #366Hooks is an exploration of the materials, tools, and techniques of blacksmithing circa 1850 reinterpreted through a contemporary lens and shared through daily Instagram posts.
