Group Description

A blacksmith is a person who creates objects from iron or steel by forging the metal; i.e., by using tools to hammer, bend, cut, and otherwise shape it in its non-liquid form. Usually the metal is heated until it glows red or orange as part of the forging process. Blacksmiths produce things like wrought iron gates, grills, railings, light fixtures, furniture, sculpture, tools, agricultural implements, decorative and religious items, cooking utensils, and weapons.

Forging is also referred to as sculpting because it is the process of shaping metal. Forging is different from machining in that material is not removed by these processes (with the exception of punching and cutting); rather the iron is hammered into shape. There are five basic operations or techniques employed in forging: drawing, shrinking, bending, upsetting, and punching.

Are you a blacksmith? Please share your experiences and show pieces of your craft with everyone..
