“Just as the hot metal twists and bends to create beauty, so does the craft of blacksmithing itself. I celebrate this aspect of my art and look forward to all of its possibilities.”
Blacksmith Steven Bronstein has been creating functional and sculptural ironwork for more than twenty-five years. He uses both traditional and modern tools to create work in his Vermont studio, Blackthorne Forge.
Bronstein strives to blend the primitive charm of ironwork with the energy and interest of more contemporary designs. Relying on the qualities that make iron such a beautiful material, Bronstein’s pieces are both delicate and rugged.
