How we get from...
"house jewelry".... In this section I plan to share
the day to day noteworthy steps that go into making a piece
of ornamental metal
mention that some larger jobs are the results of a "team" of
skilled craftsmen. I'm a firm believer in giving credit where
it is due, and with that in mind, I will always try to add any
info regarding others participation in a project. I've had the
unfortunate experience of not getting credit for my work in
the past, and would never want to do that to another craftsman.
Designs..........many come from "design books" like Treasury
of Ironwork Designs, Wrought Iron in Architecture, Art Nouveau
Decorative Ironwork, Decorative Ironwork of the Middle Ages
and the Renaissance which are available from Dover.
great resources...are.. Catalogue of Drawings for Wrought
Ironwork - by CoSIRA.
