New Crafts: Sticks and Stones PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

New Crafts: Sticks and Stones free pdf 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.
