Fireplace Accessories Dona Z. Meilach

S&H $5.00

Here is the first book that focuses on unique custom-made fireplace accessories as works of art by talented modern artist blacksmiths. Over 400 ideas for unusual fireplace designs reflect historical styles from Renaissance to Post-Modern. You will be amazed at the infinite effects that can be wrought from a bar of metal between the hammers and anvils of more than 100 master artist blacksmiths from nine countries. You'll learn to appreciate the forms that are used; from scrolls to carved animals; and to recognize their texturing; unusual handles and hinges; supports; and more. Fire screens; hoods; doors; andirons; grates; tongs; pokers; shovels; brooms; and their stands emerge as significant decorative items in today's homes. This is also a wonderful sourcebook for homeowners and designers seeking original art for their homes. You will marvel at the artistry; variety; and craftsmanship.
