As we have to close the door on 2012 and open a new door in 2013 I am proud to say we have grown in many ways and we are all very excited to see what 2013 will bring.
2012 A year in review.....
After finally adjusting to the four seasons once again in South Dakota our shop www.toughandtwisted.etsy.com picked up pace and we were off to a busy start in 2012,
During the spring and summer months Clark also had many demonstrations at the Dakota Discovery Museum.
Clark is now the full time Blacksmith at Hansen Wheel and Wagon.This is a great opportunity and a great company to work for. He will continue to create new and exciting things as an artist Blacksmith in his own shop as well as continue to take on any projects his clients may need. Though this is a giant task to run your own shop and work as a full time smith , any blacksmith would be proud to say they are employed doing what they love to do and thats stand next to a fire and hit hot iron.
