Forged in Fire: Cathedral Ironwork

Master blacksmith Samuel Yellin called wrought iron the “salt and pepper of architecture.” Explore the magic of wrought iron in the Cathedral—from fantastic creatures to stunning flowers, all unique and made by skilled hands. A wrought iron expert will explain techniques and talk about some of the master smiths who have contributed to the decoration of this great building.
