Ironsmith

I have spoken about my friend & collaborator Saul of Coloforge before. He is a blacksmith who has a deep knowledge of the skills of smiths many years his senior, who are no longer here to preserve the craft. Always one who is drawn to the shimmer of flame, I love seeing the unyielding form of iron burn white hot and then become malleable – it’s incredible to watch. And as those sparks fly with the hammer & anvil you see the magic that still lives in this trade. I love being able to bring this weathered trade that lives in the shadows of mass-production to the fore, as I often incorporate pieces created by Saul into my commercial spaces. Not only that, but a special metal shield lives on my warehouse’s door as an amulet of sorts – my personal talisman and safeguard.
