The forge is mainly made from mud-brick, being basically a table with walls on two sides, one of which has the clay tue poking through it and which also shelters the bellows from the fire. The other wall has a mouse-hole for heating the middle of long bars. Notice even here in this village hacked out of the Sri Lankan mountain jungle the corrugated iron roof and the Chinese angle-grinder.
