    An iron man, forges iron art.


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     collierphoto is a staff photographer for the Times Argus and Rutland Herald newspapers in Vermont. This photo essay, shot Friday at blacksmith Steven Bronstein's Blackthorn Forge studio, appeared in an electronic edition for subscribers Monday. 'The lighting there is just amazing, just the way it's oriented towards the sun,' Collier said. 'It's just a really cool interesting visual environment and the guy doesn't mind us popping in and photographing him. I think all the other guys I work with are planning on stopping in at some point.'
