As Ornamental Blacksmiths we use specialized tools such as hammers, tongs, anvils, and forges to shape and mold the metal into intricate and often complex designs. The end result is a unique and custom piece that adds a beautiful and functional element to any space. Ornamental blacksmithing is both an art form and a science, as the craftsman must possess both an artistic eye and a practical understanding of how metal behaves and can be manipulated. The craft of ornamental blacksmithing has a rich and storied history, dating back centuries to medieval times where the work of skilled blacksmiths helped to define the aesthetics of the time. Today, ornamental blacksmithing continues to be a vital and highly regarded trade, with artisans working both independently and within larger design and construction firms.
