Summary: Showcases an array of ironwork commissioned for new commercial and residential building projects. Traditional styles in modern settings and designs that reach for new visual impact help to redefine ironwork's status in our current society. There are over 375 examples from more than 100 of today's top blacksmiths, supplemented with historical works from fifteen countries, some derived from old French and English ironwork. These include doors and hardware, staircases and railings, and gates and fences. This book will inspire architects, builders, homeowners, and artist-blacksmiths with a wealth of beautiful ideas.--From publisher description
