From the first dagger ever forged to today’s functional metal art—the role of the blacksmith has evolved over thousands of years. Iron replaced bronze as the metal of choice as early as 1900 BC in the Middle East, sweeping Europe by 1200 BC. The blacksmith was an important member of every European community from ancient times through the 19th century. European smiths created both utilitarian and decorative items—from weapons to window grills—often embellishing functional pieces with decorative elements, while the work of blacksmiths in colonial America was typically more practical than decorative.

Fifteen century Europe saw the flourishing of architectural ironwork—screens, gates, fences, and balconies—in both secular and religious buildings. The art enjoyed another quantum leap with the art nouveau movement of the late 19th century. Metal work continues to be a fundamental element of European architecture and metal art is enjoying a resurgence in America. History of the Blacksmith.
