Recreating the Universe by RRU student Andy Bryce

Every time a blacksmith fires up a forge, and works on hot metal, he is engaging in an elemental process that brings together fire and iron. "Blacksmithing is a part of me" says blacksmith artist Jake James of Metchosin, British Columbia.

"The first time I hit hot metal with a hammer, I had a sense of coming home."   

This is a video project for the Professional Communication MA program at Royal Roads University.
