Iron Rose for Norway (rms)

Recommended Posts

I did a search and did not see a topic about this. So I apologize if there has been one started, but think this is definitely worth sharing. Posted this on my site as well.

Tobbe and Tone, two blacksmiths from Oslo are building a sculpture of forged roses made by smiths from all over the world, a project called "Iron Rose For Norway." To honor the victims of the unimaginable violence in Oslo July 22, 2011 and to let the love grow from hammers and fire. Rocky Mountain Smiths hosted a workshop at Dragon Forge LTD to make iron roses and send them to Norway. We forged 12 roses that day. Also had a local crew, The Sharpened Axe, ask to come out of film some of the event. Below are links to the video and pictures that I took during our day.

John Bennett, Stan(Trying-it) and myself all made a rose and I sent them over, last fall. They acknowledged receiving them. It's great that those folks are doing that. Thanks for posting, Rory. :)
