John Winer, A Man of Full of Color among Shades of Grey

Charleston Forge - Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Upon entering John Winer's blacksmith studio located on his beautiful mountain property in East Tennessee, you may immediately notice that it all seems to be varying shades of grey. His tools are grey, his anvil is grey, the stacked metal rods waiting forging and even the coal used to heat the forge are all grey. In contrast, two things stand out as colorful, the red flame and glowing embers from the hot forge, and John himself. John is a colorful character and anyone who knows him will testify to that. He has a bright personality, marvelous positive energy and in a very vibrant way, submerged in this world of grey, he stands out.

John is now sought out regionally, as he has an uncanny ability to understand and interpret the dreams of his clients and deliver craftsmanship beyond their imagination.
In addition to his work being in a multitude of very exclusive homes, he has also been commissioned for design work for restaurants, banks and other commercial establishments and he has been featured regularly in a variety of publications.
John has been a contributing designer and blacksmith working with Charleston Forge for many years.  We get great pleasure out of supporting artists like John and sharing their work and their stories with you.
