Metal gates out of antique rough iron, reworked by hand in the style of European mid-18yh century.

The mining of iron ore and its processing have a long tradition in many parts of Europe. Every region has had its characteristic development as well as its economic ups and downs. One thing is sure, however: metal processing has shaped the culture and the landscape of the regions and towns. Wrought iron is an iron alloy with a very low carbon content in contrast to cast iron, and has fibrous inclusions, known as slag. This is what gives it a "grain" resembling wood, which is visible when it is etched or bent to the point of failure. Wrought iron is tough, malleable, ductile and easily welded. Historically, it was known as "pure iron" by European Blacksmiths all across the old continent.
