Medieval ironwork techniques.

This grille was made by repeating a process over and over and then joining all the elements together to make a pattern called quadtrafoil.

The image above shows the process where each bar was joggled,punched,split,joggled and punched again to precise measurements

The end result is this beautiful and interesting pattern.
