Julius Scramm completed his training just a hundred years ago but his understanding of the medium of forged iron and the forms which he persuaded it to assume speak clearly to the contemporary art smith through the shared medium of hot, malleable metal.
In this book, Hugo Kuekelhaus recapitulates the core of Schrammís own essay on the artist-blacksmithís craft, and Schramm himself follows up with an autobiographical sketch. More than a dozen photos illustrate both Schrammís notion of a disciplined approach that derives from ancient tradition and his own innovations within that tradition.
