Glenn Horr has been creating hand-forged metalwork since 1977.

    Moved to Berkeley Springs, WV in 1984 with his wife Susan.

        Always enjoying making things with his hands, Glenn's interest in metals and forging began in a high school shop class. He is primarily self-taught and continues to add to his repertoire of skills by attending workshops and regional and national blacksmithing conferences. 2014 ABANA Conference.

Using traditional techniques, Glenn creates functional and decorative work in steel as well as copper, brass, bronze and aluminum.  He enjoys working with materials that are so rigid in one form, yet yield to hammer and anvil when heated in the forge.

Known for his attention to detail and fine craftsmanship, he has been commissioned to do many architectural projects.  Glenn also markets his work through juried craft shows and galleries.

He took his first blacksmithing class through the Pioneer Crafts Council at Mill Run, PA, and has taught workshops at Touchstone Center for Crafts each summer for the past twenty + years. He has also shared his techniques through several conference demonstrations in the region.

Glenn creates a wide range of hardware for homes--anything from fireplace equipment to door hardware and railings, gates, to fine kitchen utensils, also ecclesiastical work. He also enjoys working with individuals, designers, and architects on special commissions, including new concepts and renovations.
