Det är med sorg jag för vidare meddelandet om att en av Europas och världens konstsmeder Alfred Habermann, avlidit på ett sjukhus i Österrike, 78 år gammal. Alfred var en stor källa till inspiration för många smeder runt om i världen och har på många vis deltagit aktivt i den stora återkomst som smidet välförtjänt fått under senare tid. Nedan följer ett meddelande på Engelska från Peter Elgaß and Tobias Schumacher på Hefaistos.


"The artist blacksmith with the most influence on his craft in central Europe, Alfred Habermann, recently died on 28th of April in the hospital of Waidhofen, Ybbs, in Austria only a few days before his 78th birthday. The “pope of artist blacksmiths”, the “master”, as Habermann was called by almost all of his colleagues, apprentices and friends, he was a “globetrotter” of the artist blacksmith’s trade. Nearly on every continent he held lessons and workshops in which he has lightened the fire of metal forging with modern patterns.

Until his last days he was working in his chosen “Heimat” Ybbsitz in Austria. During the last years he had found his place to be in the restored “Welser-Schmiede”, together with his daughter Christine, who is supposed to be one of his successors in the different ways of creating. Always behind Alfred Habermann there was his wife Maria. She supported him in every single way, on every single place.

With his Oeuvre Habermann created the future within the present. His visions were understood by his colleagues only years after Habermann made them come true. He was the founder of a young, hungry generation of artist blacksmiths in Europe.

Now it is up to them to show what they have learnt. This generation as sure as his master-colleagues and friends will be on the way to Ybbsitz on Friday, 2nd May, to say goodbye to one of the fixed stars of the international blacksmith’s family. The funeral will start at 12 a.m.

(This message was created by Peter Elgaß and Tobias Schumacher - HEPHAISTOS publishing house. Please excuse the bad English. But we supposed this message to be very urgent in order to make possible to every blacksmitharound the world to take part at the funeral.)"

Den här nyheten gjorde mig riktigt ledsen Habermann var en underbar smed, öppen och vänligt med mycket humor, en stor förlust för europeisk smide
