About

Green Mountain Fire & Hammer began in 2002 and officially named in
2006. I started in a small shed and have recently relocated to a larger
shop here in Wells River. I’ve been forging for 10 years and plan on doing
so for a long time yet to come. I pride myself in my designs and
workmanship. Working closely with clients for custom orders is always a
pleasure. I enjoy bringing their creative sides out and creating a piece
they are proud to own.

We started the website in 2006 and are pleased with how far it’s
come. Each piece is truly hand forged and unique, nothing is ever
identical. That’s the beauty of hand forging. Remember that what you see
on these pages can be the starting point for anything you imagine. There is
no limit.

My desire to blacksmith started with a simple banana stand, a dream
and the love and support of two special women, Joanna and Mary. Thank you.

I believe you cannot get anywhere alone in this life and there are
many people I’d like to thank for their support and encouragement. Here, I’m
sure, are only a handful. My father, John, sister Lori, brother John, my son
James, Janet and Matt, Gary, Jimmy, Christine, KC and my apprentices Zac and
Tom.

Blacksmithing is as old as the hills yet there is always something
new to learn. I’ve been fortunate enough to be mentored by some of the
best. My advice to anyone learning this trade: ask questions. Blacksmiths
in general are very open and love to talk about their trade.

Hope you enjoy our site
Thank you

Mark
