"Abundantly illustrated and thorough...this treasure of a book will be a continual source of insight, inspiration, and information."-Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot. Jewelers, textile artists and sculptors receive an excellent guide to applying textile techniques to metals; from weaving and knitting metal to producing metal braids. This provides both a sweeping history of the use of metal in art and a list of basics for beginners; from suppliers of materials and tools to using various techniques to produce finished products. -- Midwest Book Review Weaving and knitting may not seem to be likely techniques for metalworkers, but fine wire and strips of metal can be made pliable enough to be worked this way. Fisch gives detailed instructions for metal weaving, knitting, crocheting, braiding, lacemaking, and basketry. A section of historical examples and a pictorial survey of works by contemporary artists is included. --Library Review
