A Special Visit and Interview with a New Mexico Master
Association members are incredible! We were so happy to make a quick journey East of Santa Fe to visit with longtime SFAHBA members, husband and wife team Christopher Thomson and Susan Livermore at their Ilfeld, NM Blacksmith shop and gallery.
Over the holidays we toured Christopher Thomson Ironworks’ beautiful and historic stone building gallery, originally built in the 1920’s, and the Blacksmith Shop, which is truly a marvel. We had a chance to sit down and record an interview to discuss everything from Canyonlands adventuring to the magic of how metal moves when it’s red hot.

“The Jewelry of the House is the Iron Work that Goes On It,” Christopher Thomson and Susan Livermore discussing the nationally renown hand-forged ironwork created at their Ilfeld, NM blacksmiths shop – Christopher Thomson Ironworks.
Christopher discusses the magic of forging iron and listening to the elements – whether they emerge from the fiery forge or the depths of the Grand Canyon, and accessing a state of intuition within his artistic process.
