Steve uses both traditional and modern tools at his forge. His designs strive to blend the primitive charm of ironwork with the energy and interest of more contemporary design.
Relying on the qualities that make iron such a beautiful material, Steven’s pieces are both delicate and rugged. Blacksmiths have a three thousand 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 celebrates this aspect of his art and looks forward to all of its possibilities.
