Has anyone out there forged corten?
i've been trying to find out some info on this but can only find fabricated sculptures.
Currently i am doing some test pieces but it will be a while until i find out if the corten will hold its properties after its been forged.

I have just received an email stating the Mathew Clarke's new book is now available. You can find it at http://www.schifferbooks.com/newschiffer/book_template.php?isbn=9780764332470
My understanding is that in this book, Mathew has featured work from many blacksmiths inculding Tim Cisneros, and some of my work.

When creating a stair railing that has a center element on the upright balusters, it is critical to have the center element raised slightly above the center-line of the baluster.
Here is an example... the collars in the center of each elongated 'O'(oval-the upright balusters), are the center elements off-set higher than mathematical middle of the 'O'.

Hello everybody, I've been looking around here for a couple hours now and I'm pretty happy to find a site that brings so many talented metalsmiths together! I've just finished my service enlistment and have been forging my own knives and nick-nacks for about a year now. I would really like to work for a professional forge if there is work/help needed in the southern California area. Maybe you, or someone you know is in a situation to take on a hard worker and motivated learner? Thanks for reading, Happy New Year!

A quick look around this site is quite inspiring, such beautiful and technically pleasing works.
This being my first post here I thought I'd just ramble a little about myself. I come from a long line of metal workers dating back to the 1700's. I carry on that tradition with a new twist, adding an artistic element to the functional metal.
