The term "Wrought iron" includes the concepts of hammered and notched cast iron. For many people, it's become a synonym for a type of art that's tied to the past - or even an extinct art form. In actual fact, this point of view is very wrong, as the blacksmith's art has enjoyed renewed interest in recent years, particulary amongst artists and artisans.

This book includes grill gates and gratings, classic and linear lines, and goes on to illustrate wrought iron work in a liberty style. It includes stunning photography throughout.
