With case studies from leading silversmiths, a lavish guide to creating stunning and innovative designs in silver

As well as promoting the traditional origins of handmaking craft skills, this lavish book explains the latest techniques and opportunities that exist for today's designer silversmith. Written by two experienced designer craftsmen, this book takes a fresh and exciting approach by converting craft theory into visual language that informs, educates, and inspires you to try a new technique, extend your skills, and develop your own personal direction. Included is a comprehensive account of manufacturing techniques, the cultural and historical context of the making and crafting of silverware, and a unique collection and profile of designers in handmaking, production, and technology. There is practical hands-on advice throughout the chapters, as well as world-class examples of surface decoration and specialist aspects of the craft.
