Sayadi

Striking Women was put together by the Berlin artist, Latifa Sayadi, with contributions from women all over the world. It gives special reasons for every viewer to admire it as a living salute to smithing women surpassing all countries, continents, styles, methods, and concepts.

Latifa Sayadi is a Tunisian/German artist blacksmith and sculptor based in Berlin, Germany. There she runs a workshop where she creates her sculptures and commissioned pieces.

She is also interested in exposing the works of female blacksmith's. In 2008 she finished and published her documentary film about women blacksmiths, Queens of Iron.

This book is a 'striking' testimonial to women's great contribution to artist blacksmithing!
