Der Kunstschmied Otto Schmirler Otto Schmirler

S&H $5.00

In The Blacksmith (Der Kunstschmied); Otto Schmirler provides an account of work done by a master craftsman and his assistants. His purpose for this book; first published in 1977; was to re-awaken the interest in; and understanding for; the art of wrought ironwork. This book marks the beginning of Schmirler's guiding principle: to pass on what has been learned and proven; for the very essence of our craft is the handing down of experience from generation to generation. What Schmirler passes on in this book are over 750 of his drawings and photos of his work. The drawings show the master craftsman at the creative phase; and the photos document the final work of art.

The Blacksmith's Cookbook: Recipes In Iron Francis Whitaker

S&H $5.00

From a review by Crouchet at Amazon.com: This is an excellent reference for the working blacksmith. Francis Whitaker was the grand old man of modern American blacksmithing. In this book; he has included his own formulas and techniques for the common problems involved in forging ornamental ironwork. Francis thoroughly discusses forges and forge equipment; tools for the smithy; and basic blacksmithing operations and how they are best performed. All this is filtered through his many decades of hand-on experience at the highest levels of blacksmithing. I especially enjoyed this book because Francis was an opinionated; crusty old blacksmith and his persistent; forceful personality shines through in living color!

English Weathervanes: Their Stories And Legends From Medieval To Modern Times ... With 275 Drawings By The Author Albert Needham

S&H $5.00

Weathervanes tend to play an unintrusive part in our lives; sometimes being taken for granted. English Weathervanes draws attention to their history; construction use and design. This book is compiled as an introduction to weathervanes but is equally of interest to those with a passionate curiosity for the subject. The drawings have been made from weathervanes seen in several counties and; although the total area of the country covered in the search for examples was comparatively small; more than 300 (237 are included in this book) were discovered; which indicates how numerous and varied in design they are on our town and country buildings. Many weathervanes have similar subjects for their designs; but it is interesting to note how they vary in treatment so that rarely are two exactly alike to be found. If this book succeeds in influencing members of the public to appreciate these examples of craftsmanship; and persuades those who have good weathervanes on their buildings to preserve them in these days when the use of machines and mass-production methods tend to limit the output of good hand-wrought work; it will serve a useful purpose.

Southwestern Colonial Ironwork: The Spanish Blacksmithing Tradition From Texas To California Marc Simmons; Turley; Frank

S&H $5.00

The intent of this study is to show the nature and scope of the Hispanic blacksmithing craft and describe the kinds of ironware used in what is today the southwestern United States. Colonial smiths were more common in the Southwest and their work more sophisticated than has generally been recognized by scholars. They forged all manner of domestic utensils and hardware and served as gunsmiths; armorers; and farriers. The book is divided into two parts. Part I is a historical narrative tracing the story of smithcraft from Spain; through Mexico; to the American Southwest. The Spanish blacksmithing tradition; it becomes apparent; was distinct from that transferred by England to her own New World colonies. Part II looks at the colonial smith; his equipment; his methods; and the products of his forge. Information on these subjects has been taken from documents - particularly wills of blacksmiths; supply lists of expeditions; and inventories of mission workshops.

Wrought Iron FRITZ KUHN

S&H $5.00

120 pages with 191 illustrations. This book deals with wrought iron as a means of artistic expression in the hands of a craftsman. The excellent photographs of decorative wrought ironwork; while providing the expert with a synopsis of what can be achieved in this medium; will also give pleasure to everyone who appreciates fine craftsmanship. The author examines briefly the materials and techniques of forging. He lays particular stress on the fact that the basic principle for the craftsman working in this medium is the consideration of design. From his own practical experience he has come to recognize the importance of collaboration between architect and craftsman. The one possesses the knowledge of materials while the other is able to match the artistic work to the architecture. Deriving from the direct experience of a craftsman; the book surveys the many varied uses to which wrought iron can be put. It contains descriptions and illustrations of wrought-iron grilles; gates; banisters; balustrades and screens. Both their uses in general and details of special interest are presented. It is at once an instructive and a beautiful book; in which art and manual craft are united in most happy fashion.

Beginning Blacksmithing: One Mississippi Journeyman's View Bob Heath

S&H $5.00

This book has drawn great praise from the public and also from master smiths such as Uri Hofi. It is a real whopping treatment of the Blacksmith's Craft in 430(!!) pages jam-packed with useful information. This book; among many other things; gives a lucid account of how to forge weld; has the plans to make several sizes of leather bellows; has scientific specifics of what happens to iron when it is heated in a blacksmith's forge; presents some of the basic physics with force and acceleration formulas that come into effect when a blacksmith swings his hammer; what happens when steel is heated; quenched to harden; and reheated to draw the temper in steel. Young's modulus is presented as is Poisson's ratio when iron is heated and hammered. An explanation of the electrical polarity of iron atoms is given along with the effect forging iron has on the lattice structure of iron molecules and dendritic grain arrangements in a forged iron. Why forged steel is much stronger than cast steel is given. An example of an "S" curve is presented of the quenching process. Forging Damascus knives and swords is presented. How to sharpen a plow point is given - and much more. Bob Heath has been practicing his craft for decades and you'll be glad you shelled out a few dollars for the advice and information Bob has collected over all these years.

Dekorative Turen: Einzelanfertigungen U. Sonderkonstruktionen In Metall; Glas U. Holz (German Edition) Gretl Hoffmann

S&H $5.00

Every door is at once a boundary; shutting off one area from another; and also a bond between the inside and the outside. Thoroughout the ages entrance doors to buildings have always had to be exceptionally robust. Batten construction conferred on them the necessary strength; but it also provided interesting scope for decoration. Signs and symbols already appeared centuries ago to furnish an indication of what lay behind the door. Ornamentation of doors in modern times is a special feature of church architecture. In the realm of the sacred; the door has a special roleas a threshold to the world beyond. In the secular field too however; the plain; flush door or the single metal-glass system are giving way to livelier and more original designs. Individually created doors are increasingly found beside the anonymous factory product. Now we are beginning to experiment with the structure and aesthetic appearance of interior doors in buildings as well. This book is filled with black and white and color photographs of door systems. Many styles and mediums are represented. Captions are in German and English.

Charcoal And Charcoal Burning (Shire Library) D.W. Kelley

S&H $5.00

Charcoal was the smelting fuel of the bronze ages and has been in continual use in Europe for over five thousand years. Essential to the early metalworkers; history records its manufacture and the use of its by-products but gives few details of the charcoal burners - obscure figures often working in remote forest areas. This book describes the rapid growth of the industry up to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and how the emphasis of development changed to the production and refining of charcoal's by-products - acetic acid; tar and wood spirit - for the textile industry and the rapidly growing chemical industries. The use of charcoal and its chemical products declined in the western world as methods changed; but today it is still widely used in the metal industries. The industry has entered a new cycle of growth because charcoal is the only solid; high-temperature and smokeless fuel which is made from a renewable source of raw material.

The Artist-Blacksmith's Craft Julius Schramm

S&H $5.00

The Artist-Blacksmith's Craft; published in 1935 and My Life as Artist-blacksmith; published in 1941; are the literary legacy of Julius Schramm and offer a strong encouragement for renewal here in the United States just as they did during their day in Germany. This edition contains the text of both books. Schramm's words in The Artist-blacksmith's Craft speak to blacksmiths today with just as much importance as they did when he wrote them; at the age of seventy: Schramm's My Life as Artist-Blacksmith provides us with the philosophy of his craft; sharing the integrity and enthusiasm that he had for his work at the forge.

Francis Whitaker has been responsible for getting the Schramm books published; he suggested the books be translated by Robert Ruhloff and be published by SkipJack Press. Whitaker proudly carries on this tradition of blacksmithing gives us the final word on the contributions Julius Schramm: "We all took great pains to satisfy the master and in return had our own satisfaction in doing a fine job. A year with Yellin; two years with Schramm; set the pattern for the rest of my life. The pursuit of perfection."

A large number of examples of work are furnished which are suitable for technical high schools and vocational schools; from which the instructor may select to meet his needs. In the chapters on Advanced Forging and Art Forging; the ambitious worker will find directions for more difficult types of work which he may undertake as his skill increases; for art-craftsmanship know no bounds. The author has attempted to weave together the artistic with the plainer work; as well as to present in clear form that information needed for all the various general work that may occur in the machine shop; in the tool-making plant; in the repair shop and in decorative; ornamental or art work.

Eisenzeit /Iron Age: Der Kölner Kunstschmied Carl Wyland 1886-1972 /Carl Wyland; Craft Metalsmith From Cologne Barbara Maas

S&H $5.00

Until recently; little was known about Carl Wyland; one of the leading ironsmiths of the 20th century in Germany. Although most of the literature on ironwork publlished during the 1950s and 1960s includes references to Carl Wyland; information is generally sparse; since the majority of publications were conceived as pattern books and do not offer much text. This study about Carl Wyland takes a novel approach in analyzing the work of one of the most prominent ironsmiths of this time by placing it in its historical context. The majority of the book consists of black & white and color photographs of his architectural work. Text and captions are in both German and English.

Life Force at the Anvil Joyce; Tom

S&H $5.00

This book depicts over 50 unique pieces of African forged metal work that was shown at the University of North Carolina during th summer of 1998. This is a well-illustrated book covering dimensions; composition and history; as well as; a listing of exhibitors represented. This exceptional exhibition had been organized by Tom Joyce; a blacksmith from Santa Fe; New Mexico. The exhibition contained 115 pieces of forged metal work from areas south of the Sahara Desert in Africa contributed by various collectors. The exhibit had been underwritten by UNCA and by ABANA. Tom Joyce says of the pieces in the exhibit: "I selected the pieces to accentuate their esthetic qualities; to appreciate them as art alone is to separate the realities they activate and the ideology of the groups they express. Most of these works stay hidden from view and symbolize ethics that their makers conceived as the mythical framework of human interaction at the beginning of time; and they instill social order and organization to this day. The complex histories that brought each into being; however; are absent when the objects are taken out of context from their place of origin. Therefore they must be viewed as parts of wholes; residing now in a space entirely unrelated to their original function."

Art Of Albert Paley Edward Lucie-Smith; Albert Paley

S&H $5.00

Albert Paley first came to prominence as one of the leading craft jewelers in America; an accomplishment that eventually led in 1969 to his extraordinary work as a monumental sculptor. Today he is recognized as one of the country's most gifted metal artists. The Art of Albert Paley is the first monograph on this important artist. Paley was born in Philadelphia and later trained at the Tyler School of Art; where he pursued his interests in jewelry and metalwork. It was this twin foundation that forged Paley's career; beginning in the early 1960s; at the height of American abstraction. Specifically; the artist's command of jewelry design prepared him for what remains his most famous commission; the portal gates of the Renwick Gallery of the National Museum of American Art at the Smithsonian Institution; Washington; D.C. These elegant eight-foot gates took Paley and an assistant one year to complete; they were unveiled to the public in 1974. Since that time he has made architectural sculptures for museums; organizations; and private clients worldwide; including the Reading Terminal Convention Center; Philadelphia; Yale University Art Gallery; New Haven; Wortham Center for the Performing Arts; Houston; and the Philharmonic Center for the Arts; Naples; Florida. In The Art of Albert Paley; noted critic and art historian Edward Lucie-Smith discusses the diversity and significance of Paley's achievements and explores how; like so many American artists; his work crosses the boundaries that separate art from craft. The more than one hundred illustrations reproduce not only Paley's major works; but also his preliminary drawings; many published here for the first time. This survey also includes a complete list of Paley's works; including major commissions; chronology; and exhibition history.

The graphic method of describing machine parts and their movement by means of diagrams; line drawings and photographs has been generally accepted as the quickest and most satisfactory. Since the purpose of the book is to emphasize underlying principles and not structural details; such as would appear in a textbook of machine design; the sketches and drawings will present a maximum of useful basic information without confusing irrelevant detail; since the practical engineer and inventor need only an outline of an idea for his inspiration and would probably resent elaborate explanations. Topics include: Fasteners; Adjusting Devices; Supports and Structures; Basic Mechanical Movements; Elevators; Derricks; Cranes; Conveyors; Transmission of Liquids and Gases; Combustion; Prime Movers; Transportation; Industrial Processes; Electrical Appliances; Comfort Heating; Cooling; and Air Conditioning. There are many subtopics in each category.

Medieval Decorative Ironwork In England (Research Reports; 59) Jane Geddes

S&H $5.00

The author traces the development of the designs and techniques used in the production of iron-work in England from roughly 1050 to 1500. Found mostly on church doors; chests and tombs (in the form of hinges; handles; knockers or grilles) the ironwork of this period is a virtually unexplored aspect of medieval art; and has proved to be a rich source of evidence for design and craft skills. Extensively illustrated with more than 600 photographs and drawings; Medieval Decorative Ironwork in England presents; for the first time; a comprehensive national record of this little-studied artistic medium. Geddes' discussion of iron-working techniques and the designs' symbolism will be of interest to students of medieval history; architecture and the history of art; while the catalogue provides a rich resource for archivists and church enthusiasts. Architects; conservators; designers and craftsmen will find the illustrations and technical analysis of great practical use; as well as providing a valuable source for design ideas.

Stuart Hill: Metal Works Klaus Pracht; Hill; Stuart

S&H $5.00

Black and white photo plates from cover to cover with both German and English captions. From the author's introduction: "It's clear that this is a metal designer whose methods have very little in common with those of a traditional blacksmith; although all the processes are derived from techniques discovered in the forge. Hill uses streamlined; economical processes such as welding; squeezing; and pressing. Even the simplest objects produced in this way are true to the aesthetic of modern design. One of Hill's specialisms is his continuous efforts to develop ever simpler ways of joining components. His design details are not just technically convincing; they are inspired." "The aim of this book is to familiarise readers with Stuart Hill's signature style. It describes innovative manufacturing methods and introduces a new approach to viewing and appreciating metalwork."

For any one who cares to understand forgecraft; some things explained here will be found profitable." "Forgecraft is a fundamental subject and the only argument that fully proves many of its principles is a piece of iron or steel shaped and treated properly. Intelligence rather than great strength is now recognized as the chief requisite for success in this trade. But skill can not be acquired without experience; and while knowledge of the theory is more valuable to the possessor than practical skill; the latter ought to be gained first in order than the understanding may be correct."

From Forge & Anvil is the story of one of smithing s most accomplished; yet little-known; artisans. With this photographic study; writer Candace Leslie and photographer Diane Hopkins-Hughs have restored Erich Riesel to his proper place in the pantheon of ironwork artists. The first part of the book tells the story of Riesel s life. Born in Germany; he came to America at 22 and after working as a cowboy on a number of Texas ranches; his gifts as a talented ornamental ironworker were accidentally discovered by two oilmen who were establishing handsome ranch/retreats on the banks of the Guadalupe River in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. For five years Riesel endowed their properties with beautiful ornamental works that have continued to evoke admiration. In this book; Leslie provides a fascinating description of Riesel s creative process; from discussing how he got his ideas (dreaming was important); through a step-by-step discussion of the construction of an artwork in iron. The second part of the book is devoted to Hopkins-Hughs black and white photographs. In these; she manages to harmonize her work with Riesel s; giving the viewer a wealth of information about his art. From massive ranch gates to airy railings to intricate chandeliers; Riesel turned out and Hopkins-Hughs captures masterpiece after masterpiece in wrought iron; creating a legacy that still endures.

Basics Of Style For The Artist-Blacksmith Max Metzger

S&H $5.00

This is a book that presents the basics of style particularly adapted for the artist-blacksmith. From the author: "This teaching of style should be easy to understand; and is presented without any material not relevant to the smith. It would be considered a success if it enabled the young smith to identify the period of a style with confidence; to copy an object with the particular characteristics of a style; and to know the conditions and requirements of a stylistically correct design." Translated from German with many illustrations.

Just An Idea Stanley; L. H.

S&H $5.00

Just an Idea is a collection of ideas from all kinds of sources: from books from the last centruy; from talking to old blacksmiths who remember when times were different; from talking to younger blacksmiths; and from myself; brought about through necessity for a particular job. As long as there are blacksmiths discovering new techniques in ironwork; this kind of book will never be finished. And that's just a thought. L.H. Stanley This book is filled with little tips in written format. Some examples are: "If you sand off the finish of your wooden handles; the grip improves." "To get the most out of hot rasping; use a farrier's hoof rasp that is worn a bit." "Bending wrenches are more useful if the ends of the fork are pointed."

A Heritage in Iron; by Rafael Routson 11 ¾ x 9 ½ inches; 216 pages; over 200 full-color and historical photos; cloth-bound hardcover with dust jacket. $55 (including tax and shipping) ISBN 0-9758812-0-5 Blacksmiths; mountain cowboys; timber frame artisans; and classic American craftsmanship are celebrated through the pages of A Heritage in Iron; the handsome new book featuring two ranches in southwest Colorado. With the goal of preserving the heritage of the Old West; the Centennial and Last Dollar Ranches; featured in the June 2004 issue of Architectural Digest; have been carefully restored and protected with conservation easements. These ranches will forever be devoted to traditional cattle ranching while providing open space and wildlife habitat. A Heritage In Iron documents the history of the two ranches; the restoration projects; the blacksmith work; and the individuals who forged the hinges; latches; and other ironwork installed on the ranches. Generously illustrated; the collection includes historical sepia-toned and full-color contemporary photographs; along with an assortment of the images ghosted behind the text. Meticulous mechanical drawings and graceful pencil sketches show the work that went into planning and designing the authentic barns; out buildings; and hardware of the two ranches including Dashwood House; the ranch headquarters. Author Rafael Routson speaks of these mountainous ranches and the people who call them home with the informed language of one who knows first-hand the rewards of working with the land.
