The Artist Blacksmith
Northwinds Forge, Ltd. of Colorado Springs, Colorado is the company founded in 1994 by Butch Lee, artist blacksmith.
Our initial and continuing focus is the design and creation of distinctive, hand forged, custom ironworks of an architectural nature. This includes railings, gates, and decorative hardware. Fireplace surrounds and tooling, lighting, weathervanes, and other sculptural items are also produced by our studio.
We have been blessed to have worked with many of the most renowned modern day masters of this craft such as NEA recipient Francis Whitaker, Robb Gunter, Nahum Hersom, Frederick Crist, Clay Spencer, Peter Ross, and more. We now give back in the form of lectures and demonstrations on this craft that has so enriched our lives.
Thank you for your interest in our company!
