Forge, Angel Estevez, from the Almodovar del Rio Ethnological Museum .
Many of us know him for his long professional work as a turner, milling and technical specialist in industrial machinery, or as a workshop teacher.
Also for his tireless work of recovering pieces related to the way of life of our closest past. Its museum is a wonderful wonder, with more than 5,000 pieces, a unique museum of which we are proud that it is in our town.
But those expert and precise hands, together with passion and respect, which shows the pieces that fall their hands, are capable of generating Metal Art. Artistic pieces that show his great personality.
