|By Adolf Steines
According to Charles Lewton-Brain, this book is "One really excellent chasing and repousse book. We are lucky to have this book in English at last." Translated from German by Judy Berge, this book is a long overdue treat for blacksmiths, jewelers, silversmiths, sculptors and all other metalworkers. No other text in English covers this subject in such depth and detail. This unique and profusely illustrated reference work covers design transfer, chasing, repousse, sinking, raising, surface treatment and much, much more. Adolf Steines is clearly a master metalworker who enthusiastically demonstrates his creativity, knowledge, skill, and experience. A number of tricks and special techniques are described, such as using air powered hammers for forming and chasing. This book is essential for the library of every serious artist working with metal.
