 Blacksmith and his work: deific art of forging the matter to sustain the form

June 2016
     Rare are the iron workers remaining from the Industrial Revolution; those responsible for forging metals, that with the action of fire and strength of their hammers on heavy anvils molded utensils of their communities: the blacksmiths. Legendary figures who held secret knowledge about the techniques of transformation of materials, especially the iron: qualities that granted them expressive recognition, prestige and power. In recent history we observe that the activities of blacksmiths have been drastically replaced by metal industry; surviving in a few places more remote from urban centres, and generally forging artistic objects or in a much lesser proportion utilities objects.
     This work was of crucial importance during the colonization period in Brazil. The arrival of immigrants and population growth has also increased the demand of tools and mechanisms to meet the needs of the communities that were forming. Both in agriculture and transport, and in day-to-day lives, and even in defense, the production of tools made from iron ore also expanded. It was therefore the blacksmith's shop a place of confluence of the whole community. Read more »

During the organization of the colonization he was responsible for be the blacksmith of the new colony, very demanded profession because of the rudimentary working conditions. He worked as a blacksmith until 03/19/1977, date of his death, after 43 years of work.
