Summary "A master artist and teacher of metalwork presents a bold new approach to creative expression in metal. Believing 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 create in terms of pure form, and in this book he shows him how ... The book is profusely illustrated throughout with the author's own sketches of the ideas and techniques discussed. It will be of significant value to the accomplished craftsman as well as to teachers and advanced students of this exciting and growing art form."--Page 4 of cover.
Contents The role of formal shells in metalsmithing -- Joining by solder -- Raising techniques -- Planishing theory -- Layouts -- Eccentric tubing, hinges and linkages -- Surface enrichment, refinement and finishing -- Shell structures -- The spout -- Work processes for various forms -- Glossary.
