A blacksmith is a person who creates objects from wrought iron or steel by forging the metal; that is, by heating metal and using tools to hammer, bend, and cut. Blacksmiths produce objects such as gates, grilles, railings, light fixtures, furniture, sculpture, tools, decorative items and cooking utensils.
