Blacksmithing; Art and Design

This blog is intended to address the problem off buying a piece of craft work and metal work in particular The problem are often three fold, where can I get it ,what can I have made  and how much am  I expected to pay for it ?                                                                                                       As blacksmiths and craft workers in general are not known  as advertisers so a little bit of research may be needed .The obvious thing is the net and somethings ‘word of mouth’ will  lead you to your sources .  The best advise I can give at this stage is to visit the workplace and experience the craft person  at work plying his or her   trade.                                                                                                                                             In many cases the craft person have a studio with produces on show and for sale this makes things more simple. If you are looking for an article which is unique than you are commissioning a piece of art or craft. this becomes a contract between you and the artist/craft person.                                                                                                                                           This contract is in  itself a unique and personal experience ,both the client and the craft parson are making a statement and roughly says . This piece is  part of who I am .                                                                                    wwwbrendansforge.com
