The craft of blacksmithing is an ancient one – for almost as long as humans have walked the earth, so they have been working with metals. As you would expect, blacksmiths often follow traditional methods to create their sculptures and works of art – even when an object is functional, a skilled Lydney blacksmith will always bring an artistry to it that you wouldn’t find in a mass-produced item.
Combining modern and traditional techniques
A good Lydney blacksmith will be motivated by their love of the craft, and so will often study and glean information from tradition and the past. Applying traditional techniques to new objects can lead to the creation of pieces that are unique, high-quality and of course attractive.
Continual development and innovation
However, the art of the blacksmith isn’t stuck in the past. New techniques are being developed all the time, as artists continually learn and develop, as well as experimenting with new ways of creating metalwork.
