Have you seen physically disabled blacksmiths? I have muscular dystrophy and I have been kinda looking at it lol.
Oh, definitely! There are plenty of smiths out there who do amazing work. Jewel Lin is a total badass. She is an artist maker/fabricator/blacksmith with one hand. Her instagram is RadMaxBlaster. Also check out Alex at Dystonia Knifeworks. He makes gorgeous pointies. you can find his work at https://www.facebook.com/KasenoAlex/ I’m sure there are plenty of other smiths out there, too. My feeling is that smithing can be for anybody, we just have to “smith up” (As Carl West at Prospect Hill Forge says) and make the workshop fit the smith.
