The blacksmith
     Folk high school
     Post adress

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.
