Architectural Ironwork

Dona Z. Meilach

This book focuses on the vast array of ironwork recently commissioned for contemporary, commercial, and residential buildings, as people become more aware of the versatility of iron today. Some prefer traditional styles in a modern setting. Others reach for new visual impact that is redefining the cutting edge status for ironwork in our society.


This book showcases over 375 spectacular examples of work from more than a hundred of today's top blacksmiths, supplemented with historical works from fifteen countries. Here are examples of entry areas, doors, door hardware, staircases and railings, gates and fences.

Today's craftsmen are pushing the potential of iron design by combining metals, adding new finishes, using modern equipment, and developing a fresh historical movement.
