Abstract:

Artist Philip Simmons was born on June 9, 1912 on Daniel Island, South Carolina. Raised by his grandparents, he was sent to Charleston to live with his mother at eight years old. In 1921, Simmons completed the sixth grade at Buist Elementary School in Charleston, South Carolina. He quit school at 13 years old to become the apprentice of a former slave, blacksmith Peter Simmons. Simmons remained a blacksmith for almost eighty years, continuing to teach his craft to younger artisans, learning how to do repairs on ironwork on buildings and becoming skilled at ornamental ironwork. Simmons created over 500 decorative pieces of ornamental wrought iron throughout Charleston. Awarded the National Endowment of the Arts' National Heritage Award and the Elizabeth O'Neill Verner Governor's Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Arts, his work appeared in the Smithsonian Archives of American Art. Simmons passed away on June 22, 2009, at age 97.
