By Cole Youmans, Naturally L&A — I recently had the opportunity to speak with Mathieu Larocque, owner of Toasted Metal Forge in Napanee. TMF was established in 2021 and creates custom forging projects in addition to offering laser engraving services. Some of TMF’s regularly featured products include copper roses, coat racks, and coffee spoons, or you can get in touch with Mathieu to discuss a custom project.

A home-based business, TMF products can be ordered online through the contact form available on their new website. Shipping is available throughout Canada and the United States. Arrangements can also be or picked up from the workshop locally.

 

What got Mathieu into blacksmithing?

When asked why he decided to pursue blacksmithing, Mathieu said that the major impact blacksmithing has had throughout history was a huge factor. This, combined with the decreasing popularity of traditional blacksmithing techniques from industrialization, has motivated Mathieu to hone his skills and preserve them for future generations.

 

What’s the most rewarding aspect of the job?

Mathieu says the most rewarding aspect of his work lies in conquering constant challenges. As he tackles each hurdle, he not only enhances and evaluates his skills but also pushes his limits to realize the customer’s vision. Bringing clients’ ideas to life is particularly fulfilling, not only due to the challenges of custom projects but also because of the satisfaction it brings to customers when the job is complete.
