Sunday morning at the #NewEnglandBlacksmith conference I demonstrated some #aluminum and #bronze forging. Everything was going well until I started answering a question, I wasn't paying attention for a small moment and the aluminum got a little warm thus resulting in falling apart. Though it was good to share how delicate and frustrating the material was, as well as cleaning a coal forge when you have molten aluminum in it. A lesson of its own. I did bring a finished dish in case such a thing happened. Also forged a small bronze handle and used #copper rivets. I gave it to @jessesavageblacksmith and @carriesavagevt as a thank you for their hospitality. Photo by @carriesavagevt #blacksmith #blacksmithing #handmade #btv #Vermont #neb #dirtysmith
