The Blacksmith’s Forge

Many think the skills of the blacksmith constitute “a dying trade”, but blacksmith made products still have their place in the modern world for those who desire unique handmade pieces that have a natural flow and inherent beauty: a scroll that tapers and curves from its source to its tip; a hand forged, hot set rivet joining two components; a fire welded joint blending two pieces together - these, and other traditional techniques set apart a hand made piece from cheap mass produced ironwork. The modern blacksmith can add contemporary fabrication techniques to these age old skills, making him uniquely prepared to take on anything from sensitive restoration of historic ironwork to breathtaking modern sculptural pieces.
