there has been tremendous interest in the preservation of historic
architecture thoughout the United States.
And a resurgence of interest in early iron work...it's preservation,
it's restoration, and it's creation...as an American art form
worth sharing with future generations.
This appreciation generates early ironwork restorations. And
stimulates new works that incorporate the quality in design
and workmanship...typicalof the craftsmanship of the past.
It is to this audience that we at Architectual Iron Company
direct our services.
There is a common misconception that
the term "cast" iron refers to all early iron work; or that early
iron work was always "wrought" ...or a combination of both.
The distinction between cast and wrought iron is not a matter
of old or new, but a difference in metal and chemical composition,
and technique in working the metal into a finished piece.
