|Keeping the Fire Alive|
The Asbel Goodenough blacksmith shop from 1820 still stands in the Village of Peacham, Vermont. What's more, it still works. At the July 4 and Fall Foliage festivals, it opens up and volunteers show how smithing is done. An artist could spend a lifetime in it, painting its weathered wood and rust in the dusty light. This time I opted for the bigger scene: the fire within the people who keep the craft alive.
