Artist's Description

This is where the blacksmith heats and softens the metal he works with. He then transfers it to the anvil, where he uses a variety of hammers to pound and shape the metal into a variety of shapes, such as horseshoes, hinges, weathervanes, and grill work for fences and railings. Most blacksmiths developed distinctive patterns to their work, and these became known as their signatures.
The blacksmith still uses his skills to provide much of the current hardware needs of the Village and shoes all the oxen and horses.
