Brian Brazeal began rediscovering blacksmithing on his own as a horseshoer over 25 years ago. Brian gave up shoeing to practice forging full time and was the resident blacksmith at Mission San Juan Capistrano in California for 5 years.
Brian has been traveling for several years, across the US as well as parts of Europe teaching blacksmithing. Brian also worked and studied with Professor Alfred Habermann in Austria.
Brian and his wife Karen now live in Brandon, Mississippi.
