Mountain Made Artists from
Our YouTube Channel

We here at Mountain Made Art Gallery have always put our artists and their artwork first.

With that thought in mind, we have created what we think is a rather unique archive of videos that are just a tiny sampling of what some of our wonderful WNC artists can do.

We showcase everyone from potters, metal artists, to glassblowers and wood carvers; along with many others.

We invite you to browse the selection of artist videos below here on our site or click on over to our Youtube channel DowntownAshevilleArt.

In either case, just sit back and enjoy!

Hand Forged Metal Roasters & Meat Flippers

Handmade Metal Roasters and Meat Flippers

Yes, Summer is finally here!

The Fourth of July, usually signals the time we ALL want to get outside to visit friends and family.

But with crazy airline cancellations and higher gas prices, many of us are considering doing a “Staycation”.

You know where you and your loved ones beat the heat and the stress of long distance travel by hanging out in your own backyard.

Mountain Made can help you with that…

We have a wonderful line of hand-forged bbq and grilling tools from local blacksmith Edwin Knies.

Hand Forged Roaster Sticks

[Click each image to enlarge]

These are the perfect tools for roasting marshmallows or making S’mores. (see recipe below!)

They feature two twisted metal forks to handle heavier items such as bratwursts and hotdogs.

Each roaster is hand forged right here in Western North Carolina using traditional blacksmithing tools and techniques.

They are finished with a blend of vegetable oil and other food-safe coatings, leaving a beautiful and durable “blacken” finish that will protect each tool from moisture.

Similar to finish of a seasoned cast-iron pan, they are easy to clean and will last a lifetime if properly maintained.

 

Hand Forged Meat Flipper or Steak Turner

[Click each image to enlarge]

These hand forged flippers or turners are a great tool for anyone who loves to grill, bbg or smoke meats.

They are styled in a traditional “Pigtail” hook design which makes it perfect for hooking and with a flick of your wrist, easily flip steaks.

You can also use it for turning over chops, ribs, chicken and handling meats – safely in a smoker.

There is twisted circular handle at the top that provides a nice grip with plenty of control.

These make a fun gift for those “gourmet” grillers in your life.

Fun Variation on S’mores for TWO!

Ingredients
1 (1.55 oz) milk chocolate candy bar
4 chocolate chip cookies
2 regular marshmallows

Directions

Place half the candy bar on each of two cookies and set aside.

Gentle push the marshmallows on roaster.

Roast above hot coals until marshmallows are golden brown.

Carefully remove from roaster and place one marshmallow on each candy bar half. They will be hot!

Top with remaining two or your favorite cookies.

ENJOY!

We invite you to come by Mountain Made and check out Edwin’s work for yourself: Directions to Mountain Made
