Forja Antonio Gonzalez is a workshop specialising in the manufacture of authentic wrought-iron artworks. He makes Sevillian-style wrought-iron grillwork and all kinds of furniture. He is one of the few craftsmen that continues with the ironwork tradition. First, he designs the object on paper and then he works it in iron to create the floral figures that are part of the grillwork
The tour consists of a visit to the workshop where he will give a demonstration of the traditional techniques to make and shape the ironwork, including riveting, making geometric figures forge welding and bluing or crimping of pieces.
Two different procedures are used to create new forms ironwork: pressure –applying continuous pressure with a press– or impact –intermittent pressure using sledgehammers.
This metal-shaping process does not involve swarf removal, which translates into significant savings in material compared to other methods, such as machining.
