Engraving is a vary ancient art.  Work that is done by incision is distinguished as dry-point. Dry-point is engraved with gravers and similar small tools, which are made to cut be the force of the miscles of the hand; for large work small chisels, struck with a hammer, are employed also.

    Hill-Country Iron Worker

After working as a cowboy on a number of Hill Country ranches, his gifts as a talented ornamental ironworker were accidentally discovered by two oilmen who were establishing handsome ranch/retreats on the banks of the Guadalupe River in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. For five years Riesel endowed their properties with beautiful ornamental works that have continued to evoke admiration. From massive ranch gates to airy railings to intricate chandeliers, Riesel turned out masterpiece after masterpiece creating a legacy that still endures at the Presbyterian Mo-Ranch Assembly, Hunt, Texas.

    Heritage In Iron, A Routson, Rafael

    Blacksmiths have been an essential part of the development of global civilization for thousands of years. Initially forging rudimentary tools and weapons, their work transitioned to more sophisticated tools, agricultural implements, and instruments of war. The Industrial Revolution reduced the need for the blacksmiths' work and hence slowed the development of their craft. The renaissance of the last 30 years was led by individuals such as Francis Whitaker whose dedication to the craft inspired many to learn the art and techniques of blacksmithing. Whitaker and a few of his students forged the beautiful, functional ironwork for two ranches in southwest Colorado in this book. A Heritage in Iron, earned, in 2004, the PubWest Publishers Association of the West Winner's Award and 10 pages in the Architectural Digest. Featured throughout are hand-forged fixtures, fireplaces, tools, and includes 200 color and historical photos. An Independent Publisher IP Award Finalist. Index.
