Jessica's progress in the forge is sometimes unbelievable! She is such a fast learner, soaking up every bit of instruction and teaching like a sponge. It fills Jessie with a great sense of pride and selfworth to learn the craft of forgin from her father. It is both physically demanding (Jessie is proud after each session that she kept up and is getting stronger and stronger!) and allows her creativity to run free. With the hammer in her hand and the red hot steel on her anvil, she can create intuitively, expressing what she feels in that very moment.
The fact that Jessica will be the 4th generation in her family, fills both Jessie and her father with immense pride. And you can just see in the way she handles herself in the workshop, that forging runs in her blood.
