Blacksmith's credo

Durable  - properly  finished works made of suitable materials can
survive rust and malevolence 
and serve their purpose for a long time.

These photos were taken 16 years after forging of the fireplace screen and smoke oven hinges for a cus-tomer  in Hiiumaa. Time had covered the massive forged iron with a beautiful uniform layer of oxide, or rust, as it is commonly  known.  The simple form of the fireplace screen and the  hinges is  timeless, the ironwork will only become more dignified in time and will last for several generations.
