About

Under the Sweetgum Tree

The idea for Sweetgum Forge came about as I began blacksmithing. The Sweetgum tree (Liquidambar styraciflua) is a common tree here in the Southeast. My workspace is under the shade of one such tree. In honor of that tree and Longfellow's poem, I named my forge Sweetgum Forge.

Inspired both by traditional blacksmiths who sharpened plows, made hinges, and repaired wagons along with the more recent tradition of artistic blacksmithing I strive to create functional items that have an artistic touch.

    I strive to combine modern and historical blacksmithing methods to produce functional, unique objects that have the potential to be heirloom pieces yet still stand up to the rigors of everyday use. Every item in my Etsy shop is handmade, by me.
