Craftspeople and teachers throughout North America have adopted The Complete Metalsmith as an indispensable resource. Now revised and expanded, this class handbook gives fuller coverage to familiar techniques and adds many new procedures to its already encyclopedic breadth. The straightforward test and instructive, clear drawings bring even complex techniques within everyone's reach. Extensive charts and tables, supplemented and updated in this edition, offer valuable information and resources. The wire binding makes this guide thoroughly practical for both studio and classroom use.
Tim McCreight, a working metalsmith and professor at the Portland School of Art in Maine, has authored four books on metal working and writes for several magazines. He also maintains an active schedule of workshops and exhibitions.
