Falling in Love with Blacksmithing.

For the first two weeks of July '14 I spent every waking moment consumed by blacksmithing in the mountains of North Carolina. Okay fine, not 'every waking moment', there were plenty beers to be had. I woke up every morning, built my cole forge (this is where you heat your iron), watched demos from my teacher Pamela Wallace and soon after I got to it. Forming glowing hot rods of iron on my anvil and with the power hammer. Blacksmithing is one of the most primal crafts there is. I always knew that I love metal but after getting a taste for blacksmithing and working with iron my affinity has expanded to a new level.
