The appeal of tin lies as much in its usefulness and practical applications as in its subtle tone and malleability. This book fully explores the different techniques used today, through 25 traditional and contemporary tinwork projects, all shown in step-by-step photographs. Among the projects are delicate decorative pieces, such as ornate incense holders and an embellished picture frame, and utilitarian objects such as a lunch box made out of tin cans and an oil-drum barbecue. The section on basic techniques covers cutting tin, decorative techniques such as punching, embossing and soldering, and choosing the best materials for the job. A gallery of work by contemporary designers provides further inspiration, and represents the varied styles that can be achieved using this exciting craft. Illustrated with over 250 photographs, the book provides comprehensive instruction for newcomers to the craft, and will inspire the more experienced to experiment and develop the full potential of the medium.
