It is a kind of decorative work on metal surfaces such as gold, silver, copper, etc. This term means perforation, that is, stripped patterns or networks made of wood or metal particles. The age of this art style, same as other metalworking, dates back to the earliest human experience with iron and copper. Since the early humans discovered that these metals are suitable for them, they made objects based on their creativity and talent. Metal latticework is widely practiced in Isfahan and Tehran nowadays. The artist chooses the plates that fit the specific work. Then it is cut into the desired proportions. The plan of the final work is deigned on the plates and in order to prevent plan removal during the cutting stages, the lines are carved by cold and pointed chisels. It will also make the sawing stage easier. In the next stage, a fretsaw is used for cutting the parts, depending on the thickness of the sheet and the selected design. Plates which are used in latticework might have various thicknesses as 1 to 8 mm. The parts of the plate that should be cut are perforated by milling cutters to allow the fretsaw blade pass the hole. As the stripes and particles are prepared, they are filed, washed and put together according the designed plan.
