Welcome to Brown County Forge
At Brown County Forge, blacksmith Terran Marks makes hand-crafted ironwork and teaches blacksmith classes.
See some examples of Terran’s work below and on the Portfolio page.
From fire pokers to box hinges to door handles, all of the hardware from the shop has a distinct, rustic look. Each piece is buffed, smoothed, and sealed against moisture, but they all have that hammered, fresh from the forge look.
Handmade hardware and custom ironwork are available by request: firstname.lastname@example.org
