Textile Techniques in Metal Summary


Textile Techniques in Metal: For Jewellers, Textile Artists and Sculptors by Arline M. Fisch

An internationally recognized jewellery designer, Fisch has been largely responsible for introducing to a wide audience, the concept of applying fibre techniques to metal. In the process, she has enriched the creative lives of both metalworkers and fibre artists. Jewellery makers and sculptors have discovered new techniques for their familiar materials. Weavers, basket makers, and other fibre artists have incorporated new and wonderful materials into their familiar textile techniques. In "Textile Techniques in Metal", Arline Fisch describes in detail the application of fibre techniques to precious and non-precious metals. After tracing the technique back to ancient and diverse cultures, she describes the basic tools and materials required. Then, with step-by-step instructions and ample how-to-photos, she explains how to work each fibre technique in metal wire or strip: weaving, knitting (including machine knitting), crochet, braiding, lace making, basketry, and knotting. Each technique is illustrated with examples of handsome jewellery by accomplished designers. The final chapter consists of a photo gallery of more than 50 stunning pieces created by talented designers, illustrating the full range of styles, techniques, and metals. Whether you're a jewellery maker, a sculptor, a fibre artist, or simply an admirer of fine an innovative design, this is a book you'll want to browse through at leisure and then study in detail.
