9781626546110: Textile Techniques in Metal: For Jewelers, Textile Artists & Sculptors

When you think of fiber arts, materials like copper, silver, gold, and steel probably don’t come to mind. But renowned artist and jeweler Arline Fisch has transformed this unlikely combination into a striking movement that is limitless in its formal possibilities and capacity for beauty. Showcasing stunning work that blends jewelry, sculpture, and clothing, Textile Techniques in Metal is the first and only comprehensive book on the innovative intersection of the fiber and metal arts.

This richly illustrated book explains, in easy-to-follow language, a variety of methods and strategies for manipulating metals with techniques borrowed from textiles. The author provides detailed instructions for adapting techniques like,

  • Knitting
  • Crocheting
  • Weaving
  • Basketry
  • Braiding
  • And lacemaking

With insightful historical information and numerous inspiring examples of work by the author and other talented artists, Textile Techniques in Metal will serve as an eye-opening reference for textile artists, sculptors, and jewelers alike. 

Arline M. Fisch, Professor of Art Emerita at San Diego State University, is an artist and jeweler working primarily in precious metals. She exhibits work nationally and internationally.  Her work melds jewelry, sculpture, and clothing, and she incorporates the structure of textiles and fiber craft into metal-based pieces that are often inspired by ancient cultures and the natural world. Fisch is the recipient of numerous honors, including an honorary doctorate from Skidmore; a gold medal from the American Craft Council; the Lifetime Achievement Award in Crafts from the National Museum of Women in the Arts; and multiple Fulbright fellowships. Her work is represented in numerous museum and private collections.

Review:

"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
