October 2022 General Meeting

Thursday, October 27 at 7 PM
Blacksmith Steven Bronstein

Via Zoom for members. See link below to join.

Blackthorne Forge is owned and operated by Vermont blacksmith Steven Bronstein. He and his helpers have been creating functional and sculptural ironwork for over 40 years.

Relying on the qualities that make iron such a beautiful material, Steven’s pieces are both delicate and rugged. Blacksmiths have a 3,000-year tradition that has changed and grown with the ages. This capacity to adapt and evolve with the changing designs of the day is the blacksmith’s greatest strength. Just as the hot metal twists and bends to create beauty, so does the craft of blacksmithing itself.

Steven’s work is available in more than 100 galleries around the country. You can see his work at www.blackthorneforge.com
