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.
