Last summer, Bug spent some time at an art festival chatting with a couple of blacksmiths. A couple of weeks ago, out of the blue, she said that she wanted to learn more about it. I went to google and found a blacksmith here in town. I emailed him and he said that we could pay him a visit. Today was the day.

This was added on to the end of a wrench so that he can hold both ends. He used it to twist the metal.

It was HOT!

He used this piece of metal to show us the different techniques that he uses...2 kinds of twists, hammering designs in, pressing designs in...

He was a pirate for Halloween one year...

The leaf is really cool!

This shows different finishes that he does.

Bug was stunned when he gave her the leaf and the other piece that he'd been working on.
