- Decorative Ironwork Cosira$22.00
The information contained in Decorative Ironwork - some aspect of design and technique is aimed at the specialist ironworker and will assist students to gain a better understanding of their craft. Though working drawings of each grille have been produced, the grilles should not be regarded simply as catalogue designs, but rather as examples to be studied one in conjunction with another. The examples have been called 'grilles' for convience and not because the repeating designs employed are suitable for the making of grilles only, or to suggest that the decorative features must necessarily fill any given framework. In fact the techniques dealt with in this book can be applied over the whole field of decorative ironwork.

Two things are essential. The first is a thorough understanding of the special properties of metal as an artistic medium and an intimate knowledge of the techniques for working it.
The second is to free the artist from thinking in terms of function, since this limits his concepts of what can be created.
A major feature of this book is an extensive glossary of a new vocabulary with each term illustrated with a sketch by the author.
