At one time, almost every town and village had a blacksmith. There are fewer smiths today, but despite the public perception that blacksmithing belongs to a bygone era, the craft is thriving. Architectural ironwork demands a wide spectrum of skills, from making a finely detailed drawing to forging heavy, red-hot metal bars. A good gate, grille, or balustrade looks so self-evidently right in its setting that its origin seems almost beyond question, but a blacksmith had to measure, design, forge, assemble, finish, and fit it in place. Written by a leading artist blacksmith, and illustrated with nearly 250 photos and drawings, Forged Architectural Metalwork looks at design, construction, finishing, and installation, as well as the skills required of smithworkers in the architectural field today.

About the Author:

Peter Parkinson studied Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art and began a career as an art college lecturer. In 1980 he became a "born again blacksmith" and initiated a BA [Hons] Metals degree course including studies in blacksmithing. In 1992 he set up his own practice as an artist blacksmith. He regularly writes articles for Artist Blacksmith magazine, the journal of the British Artist Blacksmiths Association, and for similar journals in America. He is the author of The Artist Blacksmith [Crowood].

Book Description The Crowood Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Hot-forging iron - blacksmithing- is a craft that evokes a passion, yet demands commitment from practitioners because it is just too much like hard work to undertake lightly. In recent years it has grown and flourished, yet remains a unsung craft success story. Contemporary forged architectural metalwork can now be seen all over Britain, but the names of the makers are far less well known that those of people in other crafts. Good architectural metalwork comes into its own as part of a particular building or space. A good gate, grille or balustrade looks so self-evidently right in its setting, that is origin seems almost beyond question. Written by a leading artist blacksmith, and illustrated with one hundred and eighty photographs and fifty drawings by the author, Forged Architectural Metalwork discusses design, construction, finishing and installation; and describes the wide range of concerns and skills required by smiths working in the architectural field today.
