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. David is also a writer of articles and fiction. His children's book Stunt Crow is available on Amazon and Jewel of The Brook is forthcoming.

This extraordinary book includes over 40 sets of project plans for all personalities, skill levels and interests that are specifically designed for students, beginning welders, hobbyists, and do-it-yourselfers. Many of the plans have been built multiple times by students and others. The plans are easy to read and the projects are meant to motivate the reader to want to learn the welding and fabrication processes. All plans include a list of materials, dimensions, special notes as needed, and any commentaries about special equipment that might be necessary to complete the project. The cost of building each project varies but generally can be made for under $5. Many local welding shops and companies that build with sheet metal have scraps laying around that they are willing to donate to schools for student use. In this case, the projects can be made at very little cost to a school or individual.

Hot-forging iron - blacksmithing- is a craft that evokes a passion, yet demands commitment from practitioners because it is just too much like hard work to undertake lightly. In recent years it has grown and flourished, yet remains a unsung craft success story. Contemporary forged architectural metalwork can now be seen all over Britain, but the names of the makers are far less well known that those of people in other crafts. Good architectural metalwork comes into its own as part of a particular building or space. A good gate, grille or balustrade looks so self-evidently right in its setting, that is origin seems almost beyond question. Written by a leading artist blacksmith, and illustrated with one hundred and eighty photographs and fifty drawings by the author, "Forged Architectural Metalwork" discusses design, construction, finishing and installation; and describes the wide range of concerns and skills required by smiths working in the architectural field today.

Did you know that you can transform a cheese grater, a few bits of old cutlery and a handful of nuts and bolts into a household robot brimming with character in no time? Presented like a recipe book, Assembled will inspire you to make your own bots from random flea market finds and some unwanted junk through 23 quirky "robot recipes". Each of the 23 robots is shown through the transformation of a group of “found objects” into a finished sculpture with accompanying instructions on inspiration, assemblage methods and bonding techniques. The projects are disassembled to their very core to reveal not just the easily identifiable elements used in their creation, such as a tennis racket, thermos, or bicycle frame, but also every screw, bolt, thread, rope or wire used to assemble them. The text accompanying each piece comes from the artists and offers a unique insight into the creation and character of each individual robot. These charming background stories describe the journey from seemingly random, found objects to a finished, named creation, and are followed with precise instructions on how each piece is put together. A list of individual components and tools used completes the "recipes". The three-dimensional counterpart of collage, as an art form assemblage art traces its origins back to Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Marcel Duchamp who famously attached a bicycle wheel to a stool and called it a readymade. The term assemblages was first used by Jean Dubuffet in the 1950s to describe a series of collages using butterfly wings while the genre of assemblage art was created in 1961 by Peter Selz and William Seitz who co-curated the exhibition The Art of Assemblage at the MoMA in New York.
