HE GIVES A TENDERNESS AND SENSIBILITY TO NORMAL RAW IRON MASTER BLACKSMITH FORMERLY AND TODAY
Blacksmithing has always been a rare craft and blacksmith masters highly valued. After all, most can be seen in history, it nicely shows how important this craft was. Without a blacksmith's forge, former normal life and development could not have existed at all. Blacksmiths produced machines for soil cultivation, later they repaired them, as well as tools for livestock breeding or harvesting. Blacksmiths also produced tools for other crafts, such as winemakers, cabinetmakers, or flax craft. A blacksmith was an invaluable helper for wagon freighters. Without any iron-bound wheels, none of them would have gone far with their wagon. Blacksmith's forge was therefore often in the village, and the city, one of the important centers of life, where many people met. The importance of the smith's character is evidenced by the fact that the smith is a mysterious being of many fairy tales.
This recently almost defunct craft is once again coming to the forefront. There is a growing interest in various forged decorations and functional elements in the household and handwork is becoming very much appreciated. Blacksmithing thus becomes exceedingly an artistic craft. Pleasant with useful combine in artistic blacksmithing UKOVMI, founded by brothers Miroslav and Martin Poloha in eastern Slovakia.

WINE CELLARS
The wine cellar has its place not only in the area of maturation and storage of wine but also in the world of architecture and design. At times, underground or semi-underground spaces constructed of stone or clay were used only to store food supplies. Gradually they began to play an important role as wine-makers workshops. Due to its exceptional hydrometric properties, a cellar is an ideal place for storing and maturing wine. Since the Middle Ages, we have known the famous French wine tastings, or degustations, which are a ceremony for professionals or amateurs. Wine tasting has more grades and sectors, but the one I am writing to you now about is for lovers and amateurs of the oldest drink of mankind. If you want to enjoy a sip of good wine, you need a certain air temperature to keep the drink in your cup at a willing degree. Where else will you do better than where the wine has matured in a wine cellar. The predecessor of wine shops and wineries here the wine cellar takes on another role, instead of tasting or degustation, and thus becomes a full-fledged creation of architecture and design. Functionally and comfortably furnished wine bar, wine cellar or restaurant, to attract the attention and admiration of the customer, requires its specifics, which include utility and decorative accessories and furniture with themes adapted to the environment. Forged furniture, wrought-iron lamps, and accessories for wine taverns, wine shops, restaurants, mountain or rural hotels, from the Blacksmith Art Studio UKOVMI, clearly have these qualities. A luxury hand-forged chandelier a ladder in the form of a grape-vine, a hanging lamp a wheel with bunches of grapes, a side lamp a grape leaf or a wine rack can create a magical atmosphere in the vintners' world.

REST AND RELAX IN THE GARDEN
The summer inseparably includes a garden party, the smell of a barbecue, evenings with friends on the terrace or even the rainy weather spent with loved ones in the garden gazebo. A pleasantly arranged terrace, garden or gazebo is an outdoor space but should be aesthetically pleasing and a design continuation of the interior, so they get nowadays more and more attention. In the summer, a garden bench, a sofa in the gazebo or a terrace chair become our companion for a few weeks and contribute to our comfort and the opportunity to enjoy the summer season. And what do you think about the idea of a hand-forged swing ready for your relax after work or a warm evening under the stars in the garden? The Blacksmith Art Studio UKOVMI manufactures designer exterior furniture made of iron and stainless steel but also creates complex facilities for terraces or public areas. Each piece of outdoor furniture; such as a forged bench, table, sofa, garden swing or shelf, chest of drawers or other forged and stainless steel gazebo furniture are handmade and can be custom made to suit the customer. UKOVMI also uses other natural materials, such as wood, stone or leather, to create furniture, giving them a specific glamor of nature. The high-quality anticorrosive treatment provides them with virtually unlimited lifetime, which is a rarity in today's consumer society and that is why this brand carries its reputation for luxury production for just reasons. Exterior furniture from the UKOVMI company can influence the overall architecture of the garden or terrace and convince you that a forged garden swing, bench or dining set is a unique investment in the comfort and convenience of you and your guests.
