J.E. Hawley

This is the story of blacksmithing, considered by many to be the "king of the Crafts". Smithing fathered the metal working industry, which we take for granted today. It is a story about an art which was recognized as an equal of other great art forms.

It contains pictures of some of the world's finest iron-art, and relates where countless other examples may be seen. It also shows modern day creations, which demonstrate that there is still a place for beautiful hand forged art objects in a 20th Century. It offers aid and inspiration to the growing number of persons who are looking for a vehicle of self-expression-a vehicle developed and nourished during thousands of years by art-craftsmen around the world.
