Steven Bronstein

Vermont blacksmith, Steven Bronstein has owned and operated Blackthorne Forge for more than 25 years. The forge is located on Rte 2 between Plainfield and Marshfield. Steve has recently served on the Standards Group of the Vermont State Craft Center Overview Commission.


"Blacksmiths have a three thousand year tradition that has changed and grown with the ages. This capacity to adapt and evolve with the changing designs of the day is the blacksmith’s greatest strength. Just as the hot metal twists and bends to create beauty, so does the craft of blacksmithing itself. Steven celebrates this aspect of his art and looks forward to all of its possibilities."
