There is a historic separation between science and the arts, perceived as a tension between subjective inspiration and objective observation. This book offers a bridge between the two worlds- a noted scientist speaking to craftspeople in their studios. The result is a remarkable volume that captures centuries of metallurgical science and renders it accessible to non-scientists.
Knowing the underlying logic of materials helps metalsmiths as they make everyday decisions about solders, fabrication, and casting. There is a power in understanding, even in a general way, the reasons behind the effects revealed in the studio. There are hundreds of books written for metallurgists, and hundreds written for craftspeople. This is one of the few books written for both.
