My name is Gustav Thane. I run the old forge of
Ryfors Bruk outside of Mullsjö. I work with metal art, design, and old
fashioned blacksmith work. I’m specialized in liturgical objects and
public art. I also teach and do commission works of all kind.
I’m fascinated by hot forging as an cultural
expression and have spent a lot of time investigating the possibilities
for craft to develop philosophical. A blacksmith theory
would be based on the craftical formation and
independent of the contemporary art theory. Hand in hand with this
passion is my ambition to teach. I’ve been lecturing at different
universities and blacksmith meeting all over.
