âBut blacksmiths are not just metal workers. From their beginnings they did not just create functional items. They embellished them with increasingly intricate shapes and other forms of decoration and created blacksmith metal art. Archaeological sites all over the world have found metalwork with intricate inlay work or which have be forged into complex shapes that were not necessary for their function but added to their aesthetic appeal.
The blacksmith, as an essential manufacturer of industrial goods prospered until the time of the Civil War. After that, the advent of the railroad and the coming of large factories that produced iron work in bulk started pushing him into the background. With the advent of the automobile and then mechanized farming in the early part of the 20th century, there was little need for his services. By the end of World War I, the blacksmith, as a producer of goods, was extinct.â
