Description
The art of the silversmith has changed little over the centuries, although the metal has continually inspired those who work in silver to develop new techniques and designs. This outstanding guide explains those techniques, emphasizing the importance of design. Silversmithing: A Manual of Design and Technique offers advice on the workshop and selection of tools and metals; step-by-step instruction on the techniques, from simple sinking to hollow handles and spouts; and ideas for decoration, finishing, and polishing. Throughout, the illustrated works underscore the scope of creativity and originality open to the modern silversmith. Keith Smith taught Silversmithing at England's Loughborough College of Art and Design for over 30 years.
