About the Author:

Peter Parkinson has spent a lifetime working as a designer and maker. He studied Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art. In 1979 he discovered blacksmithing and set up his first workshop. From here he initiated a BA course in Metals and taught a new generation of young blacksmiths before leaving his teaching to become a full-time artist blacksmith. Resident - Bordon, Hants

From Library Journal:

Who would have thought that there could be a book about blacksmithing that doesn't include any references to horses? Parkinson, an artist and industrial designer, creates work of such aesthetic beauty that it would be a shame to waste it on the bottom of horses' hooves. This title offers a wealth of material that will be appreciated by aspiring blacksmiths of all skill levels. Parkinson explains the tools, materials, and equipment needed by blacksmiths as well as the most commonly used techniques. Numerous illustrations of beautiful creations (such as gates, sculptures, household items, and furniture) appear throughout this fascinating title, which, while not an essential purchase, would be a welcome addition to applied art and craft collections.
