Ironwork Today 4: Inside and Out, by Catherine Mallette
Hundreds of detailed color photos provide a sweeping overview of the wide range of iron artwork being created by over 90 of today’s artist-blacksmiths. These fascinating works of art in metal are found in homes, offices, and public spaces alike. They vary in size from small, everyday objects to impressive public monuments. The pieces, discussed by the artists who made them, include sculpture, gates, railings, furniture, andirons, lighting fixtures, doors, door knockers, and much more. This book, the fourth in an ongoing series, has artwork arranged by the artist alphabetically, rather than in categories. This allows readers to see the full scope of each artist’s work on adjoining pages. Here readers will find some artists whose work they have appreciated in other books in this series; others they are discovering for the first time. This book will be a valued reference guide and inspiration source for homeowners, designers, artists, and blacksmiths as a fascinating snapshot of the current trends in this vibrant, growing, changing field of artistic endeavor.
