I have been blacksmithing for over 25 years and a member of The Guild of Metalsmiths for almost as long. My apprenticeship was in a historic shop, making tools, hardware, and other iron implements with minimal tools and only strength of arm. Since then I have learned other metal skills including repousse, chasing, and wire inlay. I still find myself most at home making utilitarian items that serve their purpose well while being pleasing to the hand and eye.
