Synopsis: Creative work in the studio can benefit from an understanding of materials and processes, but too often the worlds of science and art are unable to share information. This book bridges the gap through clear language spoken by a metallurgist with several decades of teaching experience. Through hundreds of charts, tables, and graphs, the author explains the intricacies of work-hardening, annealing, and alloying. This is a serious book for people who understand the value of technical information.

About the Author: Mark Grimwade holds degrees in Physics, Chemistry, Maths, and Metallurgical Quality Control. For more than two decades he was Senior Lecturer at the City of London Polytechnic, and it was there that he started teaching metallurgy to practicing studio metalsmiths. He has been a consultant to the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, the World Gold Council, and the Royal College of Art. He has written numerous technical papers in the field and given presentations at the prestigious Santa Fe Symposium in the US.
