As the winter turns to spring and brings in the growth, so too does the spring hold growth for the Forge!
After finally getting in a crucial piece of equipment, and a hectic start to the year, It looks like there is a rhythm popping up. Many custom pieces will be coming out of the woodwork as they get sent to their new homes. The production pieces mentioned on my other pages will be getting their pre-order slots. and many more one off customs will be available as the year goes on.
Thank you all for your patience and patronage!

I am an Artist at heart, and that same passion runs to the core of every project I create.
Not only do I create tools but Traditional Media as well. I take on commissions and will regularly have pieces available throughout the seasons.
