Exceptional artists forging metal magically transformed by fire.
PBS's well-regarded art series is back with another look at a specific craft. This go-round we're dealing with the art of forging, the metalworkers of America who express themselves within the purifying fire of the whatever-it-is they use to make their materials malleable. Some cursory research (i.e., watching The 13th Warrior) reveals that forging has been around as an art form for quite a long time. Today's metalworkers take up the mantle of creativity and inject their own idiosyncrasies onto the anvil.
