        Video shot & edited by Ben Schreiner for Traditional Arts Indiana & www.indianaartisan.org Lyn and Jay Ocken had no intention of building a business out metalworking. As a multi-generational horse family, they just wanted to use their creativity to make their own unique spurs, bits and buckles. What they discovered was a knack for creating functional art that appealed to a wide range of horse enthusiasts. Jay is the blacksmith, forging the sterling silver and steel pieces that Lyn then engraves and embellishes with bronze and silver. What I do is the basis for Lyns artistry, says Jay. Our work isnt unique or beautiful until she touches it. After classes in engraving and time spent with expert bit and spur maker Vernon Lynes, the Ockens began to expand their business through referrals, some as far away as Australia. Most of their pieces are custom order, but they both want to see their business grow to include more of Lyns artistic expressions. The Ockens also want to elevate their metal work as a valuable traditional art form for Indiana. Lyn feels the Indiana Artisans program gives them the avenue they need to market their business both here in Indiana for exhibition and wholesale for industry trade shows. We had also grown very tired of the box stores and products that were stamped out with no human hands ever touching them, and no heart going into how they were made, Lyn says. Ockens are now hopeful that they can soon be in the studio full-time. We have two kids, 10 horses, 3 dogs, 2 cats and 14 chickens. It keeps us busy but we enjoy getting to do what we love on a daily basis. indianaartisan.org
