Iron Menagerie

Guild of Metalsmiths

Several years ago a few of The Guild of Metalsmiths' members collaborated on writing and publishing a "how to book" on forging animal heads. The result of their effort is the book, Iron Menagerie, which explains how to forge fifteen different animal heads. Blacksmith Paul Hubler (who hammered out all the projects in this book) is present throughout in pictures and text to explain each and every step in forging the various animal heads.


Iron Menagerie shows its uniqueness by clearly demonstrating every step in the animal head process so any person with a minimal amount of experience can easily follow the instructions. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Iron Menagerie go to The Guild of Metalsmiths Education Fund.
