I don´t know much about iron work but I admire the work of craftsmen. Way back Erik Montelius, an ancestor on my father´s side, arrived to the island of Gotland and made his living as a skilled blacksmith.

He also had an inn in Slite for 25 years. Monteliuska huset, Slite.

His sons, Gustav and Frans Montelius, also became ironsmiths but unlike their father they – as well as their sibling – became baptists and very active in the temperence movement.
