"A master artist and teacher of metalwork presents a bold new approach to creative expression in metal. Believing that the time has come for the artist to free himself from the functional forms that have dominated the metalsmith's craft -- the cup, the box, the pitcher, etc. -- Heikki Seppä urges the craftsman to create in terms of pure form, and in this book he shows him how ... The book is profusely illustrated throughout with the author's own sketches of the ideas and techniques discussed. It will be of significant value to the accomplished craftsman as well as to teachers and advanced students of this exciting and growing art form."--Page 4 of cover.

"This book is about how metalsmiths and jewelers can take advantage of the intrinsic characteristics of metal, understood since antiquity, and employ a mechanical device known for nearly 200 years to make objects by hand. Die forming, as described here, does not restrict or replace hand work. In fact, the die-forming process requires additional skill and knowledge in the making of dies, and in controlling their use in the press. Die forming extends the possibilities of what one can make and opens new avenues of exploration. It is a continuation of the tradition of innovation in craft." --introduction.
