    Form Emphasis for Metalsmiths Seppä, Heikki
    $25.00

    A master artist and teacher of metalwork, Heikki Seppä, presents a bold new approach to creative expression in metal. He belives that the time has come for the artist to free himself from the functional forms that have dominated the metalsmith's craft- the cup, the box, the pitcher, etc. Heikki Seppä believes that the time has come for the artist to free himself from the functional forms that have dominated the metalsmith's craft - the cup, the box, the pitcher, etc. Heikki Seppä urges the craftsman to creat in terms of pure form, and in this book he shows him how.

    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.

    Format: Soft Cover;  Dimentions: 7" x 10";  Pages: 146;  Illustrations: Profusely illustrated.

    Heritage In Iron, A Routson, Rafael
    $45.00

    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.

    Format: Hardcover.   Dimensions: 12" x 10.75"   Pages: 215   Illustrations: 200
