Understanding Ironwork Terms

Ironwork is an old art form that stretches back to 4000 BC and is still being produced by artists today. Ironwork involves manipulating iron, the earth's most common element, into a wide variety of creations, from deadly weapons to stunning balcony architectural features to simple pots and pans. Whether your interest lies in buying or creating your own ironwork, there are a few terms you should understand about ironwork.

  • Blacksmith – An artist who works with wrought iron using a hammer and an anvil to weld the metal while it is still hot from the furnace.
  • Weld – Process of combining pieces of metal by hammering once the metal is made soft by heat.
  • Wrought Iron – One of the two main divisions of ironwork, wrought iron is made by hand by a blacksmith. Today, wrought iron is commonly used for decorative work on gates, and filigree-type work.
  • Filigree – Very fine metalworking made to resemble threads woven together for intricate designs, often utilizing gold or silver metal.
  • Cast Iron – The other main division of ironwork, cast iron is made in a furnace and then poured into a mold when hot. Cast iron's strength is in compression, but it has weak tension, which means it may break when stretched. Cast ironworks are not as decorative as wrought ironworks, and are typically used for columns, fences and rails.
  • Custom – In ironwork, custom refers to custom-made, the practice of creating a piece for a certain customer build by hand according to specifications . For example, an ornamental fence gate built directly to fit the buyer.
  • Balcony – An outside living area on the upper floors of a home, usually with a rail fence around the edge.
