Forged Iron Works have held their own in the wide array of the Indian metal works repertoire. One finds small, entrepreneurial dwellings and workshops where the products are created, piece by piece, to suit the evolving tastes of the contemporary household. Starting at the outdoors, these were traditionally use to make decorative railings, planters, holder and now we see delightful door decors and accessories. Each piece is interesting, innovative and creative.
