Irons in the Fire is a family owned and operated Blacksmith shop located in the heart of the Missouri Ozarks, Our shop is located just a few miles from the Lake of the Ozarks, West of Camdenton just off Hi-way 54 on J road.
Owned & operated by Tony & Sheri Brooks, along with their 3 young children; Daysha, Wyatt, and Zane.
Tony Brooks started his path as a fine artisan at a very young age. Tony says, “I started working part time in a blacksmith shop at age 12. The old smith took me under his wing and showed me the basics. My first job
was sharpening blow points. In the years that followed the art has more or less developed on its own.”
Tony creates functional art from metal and has forged a diverse array of objects ranging from tiny hooks to massive gates & handrails. His work is beautifully crafted and unique in design. Tony describes his passion for creating: “I love taking bright red hot steel and seeing it move and take the shape under the hammer. Samuel Yellen once said, ‘Iron is an inanimate object; it is a smith’s job to bring it to life.’ I think that sums it up very well.”
Tony became a Best of Missouri Hands Juried Artist in 2010.
