The Blacksmith's Forge

I am constantly searching for the expertise of trades sometimes forgotten or lost over time as handmade became machine made and mass produced. So I had no idea that when I met Saul of Coloforge, with a deep knowledge of techniques and skills of a day gone by, I had found what I was looking for.

Saul works with zinc and steel and other honest materials, and now collaborates with me on all sorts of projects including commercial spaces and my shop. I was lucky enough to visit his home and forge over the weekend (which he built himself!), and discovered a magic place, which I can only compare to something from Peter Pan.

Saul is soulful and a free spirit who has made an honest living for himself that goes back to the basics; reverting to a time when furniture was bent, or whittled, or sanded with bare hands.
