Meet Black Smith, the blacksmith at Myrtleville House Museum. Smith has been working in the forge for the last couple of years, making tools and trinkets for the community. Blacksmithing is the craft of using extreme heat and heavy hand tools to make iron into things from nails and hooks to knives, cutlery, and other useful tools.
Here is Smith in his natural habitat: by the blistering heat of a coke oven forge.
Smith enjoys the meditative nature of his job: the swing of the hammer, the sizzle of the red iron as it quenches in water, the crackle of the kindling. Smith is the crafty type, and you'll often see him in contemplation about the important things in life and his own life's ambitions.
For Smith, both of those things are pancakes.
Smith has a bit of a problem with pancakes, actually...
Like that'll stop Smith.
See Lumber Jack and Black Smith at Eh Day on May 17th, 10am-2pm at Myrtleville House Museum, and make sure to eat your pancakes before Smith gets them!
