The perfect resource for starting work in metal forging, this guide introduces the traditional techniques from a modern perspective. It focuses on the basics, and includes classic procedures of the craft like punching and bending, as well as modern processes such as plasma cutting, heating with a blowtorch, or the use of manual power tools. With clear instructions and over 500 detailed full-color photos throughout, the book introduces the craft’s materials and tools, from the raw material (iron and steel), to the fuels, to the forge and its accessories. Next, basic techniques in eight key subject areas are taught step by step. The book includes instructions for ten creative projects ranging from a cold-forged table trivet to a candelabra, and even a large sculpture applying industrial processes. A creativity-inspiring photo gallery features a selection of pieces by artists worldwide. AUTHOR: Jose Antonio Ares has a degree in fine arts from the University of Barcelona with a concentration in sculpture. He has completed studies in printmaking at the Escola d’Arts i Officis de la Diputacio Provincial de Barcelona and in sculpture at the Escola Massana, also in Barcelona. For nearly twenty years he has alternated the profession of sculptor with teaching sculpting techniques as head of the studio at the School of Fine Arts of the University of Barcelona. 502 colour photographs
