Wrought iron is more defined by the process than the material. The word wrought helps to outline precisely what wrought iron is…. Wrought means any metal, which is hammered, twisted or bent into shape. Wrought iron has been the material preferred by many artists. There are intricate designs on doorways, fences, and home furnishings. People have used wrought iron for their artwork for over 5000 years.
Wrought iron is tough, malleable, less fusible, and usually has a fibrous structure. Wrought iron is used mostly in ornamental ironwork, such as fences and handrails, because it is welded or painted easily and it rusts very slowly.
Wrought iron is produced directly from ore usually without being melted. The Catalan process, which originated in about 1300 A.D. in Catalonia, Spain, represented a major advance in the manufacturing of wrought iron. The process was used until the late nineteenth century.
