9th Annual Blacksmith Festival

It was a beautiful day Saturday in Spruce Pine for the 2014 Fire on the Mountain Blacksmith Festival. The beautiful blacksmithed art that was built and installed at the festival was donated to downtown Spruce Pine by the artists. The railing was built by Penland School of Craft's Iron Studio Coordinator Daniel Beck and installed with help from volunteers, the finials are by many different artists and will top the new downtown wayfinding signs with the names of the artists on a plate attached to the post. The bench, built by this year’s Master Blacksmith Scott Lankton, was started at Penland's blacksmith workshop on Friday and finished at the festival.
