Artist Blacksmith Sculpture : The Art of Natural Metalwork
by David Freedman




Overview -
David Freedman has taken the art of blacksmithing in a new direction. His metal work ranges from giant insects in the woods of Scotland to seaweed inspired gates on the Cornish coast, ethereal deer in the ancient forests of England and organic seats in some of the UK's finest historic gardens.

David's unique sculptural metalwork is shown here at its best, set within the landscape that inspires its creation.

David has been forging creative metal sculptures, delicate copper water features, decorative wrought ironwork gates and much more for over 20 years from his backyard workshop in the UK.

Rather than a beginner's guide or a blacksmithing manual, this book is more than a catalogue of David's work, with stunning photographs, design notes and sketches as well as perspectives from blacksmiths around the world and a look into the forge, past and present, giving a unique window into the ancient yet ever evolving blacksmith's craft.

This collection is also a source of inspiration for those interested in garden design and garden art as well as public sculpture.

The second book in this series, Artist Blacksmith Design: The Art Behind Blacksmithing and Metalwork, looks at the unique design processes of diverse artist blacksmiths, from sketches on paper to life-sized templates. It is a rare insight into the artistry that comes before the hammer hits the iron, with many beautiful examples of original hand made metalwork.
