Synopsis:

This informative volume on designing, detailing, and specifying metal in various applications is a much-needed reference tool for all professionals and students working with this vital material. Metal, written by designers who are also manufacturers, will acquaint designers, architects, and sculptors with the basic processes available to them in metal fabrication, so that they can begin their design process with a sense of how their work might be built. This book is not intended to instruct in the use of machinery, but rather provides a framework of possibilities for people who design custom metalwork.
