Wirework by Mary Maguire( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wire is one of the cheapest and most readily available craft materials, yet it also has the potential to form exquisite and delicate objects. However, although long celebrated in its folk-art form, this medium has only recently regained popularity. This book illustrates stunning wire pieces of contemporary artists, and describes in simple step-by-step sequences how to create 25 beautiful decorative and functional projects, showing how wire can be used for both ornamental and practical designs. You can create baskets, decorative items, kitchen equipment, mobiles, spice racks, frames, hooks, toys, and on an even grander scale, chairs and chandeliers. The book contains all the information you will need to get started in wire craft, and to take your skills forward to more advanced levels. Techniques of twisting, wrapping, weaving, binding, making coils and spirals, shaping chicken wire are shown and once mastered, all the projects can be easily achieved

Fyrtårn har en spesiell plass i menneskehetens bevissthet. Ikke rent sjeldent har disse majestetiske byggverkene reddet menneskeliv og dyrebar last fra å forsvinne ned i havets dyp rundt om i verden. Fyrvokterne hadde også en viktig rolle og utførte mange heltedåder når de kom de skipbrudne til unnsetning, noen ganger måtte de selv bøte med livet under forsøk på å redde andre. I dag er mange fyrtårn automatisert og fyrvokteren er gjort overflødig. Atter andre fyrtårn er nedlagt, mange av disse tjener nå som museer, boliger og severdigheter. Boken omhandler fyrtårn fra hele verden. Inneholdet er ordnet i ni kapitler; The early beacons : how it all began; The guiding light : beacons and sites explained; The light source and lens system; Designers and builders; Lighthouse and lore : truth, myth, and legend; Lightships and relief vessels; The age of resplendence : lighthouse design and architecture; Automation arrives; Tourism, conservation, and preservation. Boken er gjennomillustrert med flotte fargefotografier, grafiske fremstillinger, strektegninger og kart. Har innholdsfortegnelse, forord og register

"In this book, the natural beauty and texture of sticks, wood, stones and pebbles are celebrated in inspirational and practical designs. 25 original projects include a wall-hanging cabinet made from driftwood; a beautiful twig candelabra; door-stops made from stone; and pebble-mosaic slabs for a garden path or patio. It offers exciting projects from today's leading craft artists. It is a comprehensive guide with everything you need to know about materials, equipment and techniques. It offers clear step-by-step instructions with over 300 specially commissioned photographs. It presents a contemporary approach to working with timeless, natural materials. The use of stone and wood for decorative and symbolic purposes is as ancient as the materials themselves: from basket-making to a Roman pebble mosaic; from African statuettes to the mysterious circle at Stonehenge, the use of the earth's simplest materials is still effective today. This is a unique collection of 25 practical ideas for decorating your home, created by a professional artisan. Every project is self-contained, and step-by-step photographs guide the reader through each stage. The introductory section covers some of the basic skills and equipment required, while exploring the different materials involved. For inspiration, there is a gallery of original pieces from contemporary artists. With its inventive designs, this is the first practical craft book to explore the beautiful potential of these natural materials"--Publisher's description
