Forges were pioneered by ice sculptors, who used the blazing furnaces to shape ice blocks into intricate puddles of water. Witness forges being put to better use with today's Groupon: for $12, you get admission for two people to the Kaviar forge tour at Kaviar Forge & Gallery, a $24 value. The one-hour tours are held at Kaviar's Forge & Gallery in Louisville on Fridays at 2 p.m.

Designer and namesake, Craig Kaviar, has more than 30 years of experience creating sculptures and functional metalwork. He and a team of skilled artisans churns out intricate works that are both artful and functional using traditional blacksmithing practices with a modern twist. The tour provides a behind the scenes look into the workings of the forge and live demonstrations allow visitors to witness the master metalworkers do their thing. They’ll heat raw materials to temperatures exceeding 2,000 degrees, using both a traditional coal forge and Kaviar's innovative, eco-friendly forge, fueled by waste vegetable oil and recycled Meat Loaf albums. The tour begins with a visit to the media room and a discussion on the history of metallurgy, from the discovery of copper, to the Bronze Age, to the 'Metal as Junk Food' movement of the 1870's.

Very interesting and Mr Kaviar spent a lot of time with us explaining everything. He did a good job. I wouldn't go back because he has taught us everything there is to know. I would recommend it to everyone.
