Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"this lovely and unique book is highly recommended."

Library Journal (NY)

Library Journal
Artistic metalworking has come a long way since the Bronze Age. A translated edition of the Spanish El Metal, this beautiful book by accomplished sculptor Ares (Sch. of Fine Arts, Univ. of Barcelona) introduces history, tools, and technique, with some sample projects at the end. The layout is beautifully arranged, the instructions precise, and the illustrations excellent. The equipment and tools required are extensive and expensive. More for the serious metalworker than the weekend craftsperson, this lovely and unique book is highly recommended. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
