Black Bear Forge is a blacksmith and metal fabrication shop based out of Muskegon, Michigan.
I have been a blacksmith since the 1990's, after working with metal as a welder and fabricator for 30 years. I became a full-time blacksmith in 1996. I like to create things that are functional, as well as enhancing their environment with beauty. Much of my work is in people's homes - gates, railings, shelf brackets and supports and curtain rods. Sometimes I am asked to fabricate something that can't be found in the retail stores. Whatever I make, I always try to make sure it fits the customer, their tastes and home.
