WDUQ's Artists On-Air Series Profiles The Great Pittsburgh Wood Artist, John Metzler

It's right around this time last year when a tragic accident took away one of the most promising and ultimately influential artists in the city.

"Pittsburgh loses lots of trees to development, disease and pests every year and the Urban Tree Forge gives some of the timber a second life as building material, furniture and art. The woodworker John Metzler founded the organization. He was killed in May 2010 by a runaway U-haul trailer as he cut wood outside the Forge. Larkin Page-Jacobs has his artist profile."
