Relying on the qualities that make iron such a beautiful material, Steven’s pieces are both delicate and rugged. All Blackthorne Forge ironwork is guaranteed for life.
In a recent interview, Steve discussed where he gets his inspiration from. "I love how lines can cut through space and, in the process, create new spaces. I often just have a vague sense of the final image and just start by moving a piece of metal. The concept usually reveals itself as I continue to move." Read the entire Steven Bronstein interview.
