Welcome to the Baring Forge. My name is Thomas Taranowski, and this is where I share my art with the community.

I oftentimes go to various local craft shows, and periodically do demonstrations throughout the northwest. If you'd like to come by and check out my wares, or watch me at work in one of the demonstrations, this is the page to link to.

I also send out emails once in awhile to inform my friends and customers of upcoming events. If you'd like to take part, and be put on the email list, please email Email your request.

I updated the For Sale page with a couple items. As usual, I have a large stock of forgings laying around that I haven't put up yet. If you are looking for something specific, please call at 425-770-8195.

The Index Arts Festival was a big hit, and alot of fun. The forging demonstrations were understandably a big draw. I had a number of folks come a fairly long distance to watch some forging action, and was glad to give them a good show.

Also, I had a small writeup in the Monroe Herald, which was neat. Check it out Here

I've started up a blog at Art Metal in order to keep in touch with some other members of the ironwork community. I'm hoping it's going to be fairly interesting reading, so go ahead and check it out if you're interested. It's a pretty sweet setup over there.

I'll be at the Index Art's Festival on August 11. Be sure to keep an eye on http://indexartsgroup.org/ for more details. If you come, make sure to stop by my booth and say hi! I hope to be demonstrating again, if I can get the logistics worked out.

I'm looking forward to the garden art show at the art gallery in Index, WA in May. I hope to have some trellises and a garden gate made up for the occasion.
