I began my journey into blacksmithing a mere 5 years ago. I studied as an apprentice in a traditional blacksmith shop in Portland for 2 years before venturing out on my own to focus on my business and artistic expression. I started Hammer Forge Creations in 2015 and have since become an active member of the Fryeburg Fair Blacksmith Shop and a volunteer blacksmith at the Historic Scribner’s Mill in Harrison.
Focusing on small and functional work, much of my style beckons you back into ages past and eludes to a deep connection between the craft of blacksmithing and Earth and Humanity itself. I believe that blacksmithing is not only a skill or ancient craft, it is the perfect metaphor and philosophy for life as well.
