The leaf on the left is an original taken from an eighteenth century panel. The matching leaf from the other side of the panel was missing and had to be reproduced. The original leaf pattern was taken using a replication process developed ‘in house’ and drawn on computer. The leaf was then cut from 1mm thick pure iron sheet by a computer controlled laser profile cutter. The repousse work (hand-beating over a pitch block) was done cold which is possible with pure iron and the bright silver finish is typical of the material.
