I Forge Iron

Interesting site,

Recommended Posts

While in college I worked for two summers at Yale University in New Haven. I used to love walking around campus and looking at the old buildings. I especially admired all the ironwork. Years later I learned that it had been commissioned from Samuel Yellins shop. Beautiful stuff. Brilliant use of materials and patterns.

As of 2004, the Yellin shop was in business at the address shown on the site. It is actually Pete Renzetti's shop, I believe. He and Claire Yellin are working together to keep the Yellin tradition alive, and there is a young smith working with Pete who is really terrifically good. I saw some truly amazing work there.
