Color on Metal presents the work and words of metal artists in love with color. in the past several years, jewelry and decorative metal objects have become emancipated from the traditional reliance on silver and gold. Not only are copper and brass now fair game for serious designers, but the beautiful rich colors of enamels and patinas, as well as recent technologies like electroplating and anodizing, have become increasingly popular. An introductory chapter explains the different ways that metal can be colored. Four sections of striking full-color images illustrate the rich diversity of color as it is seen in contemporary work: patinas, enamels, applied color and avant-garde. for each of 50 pieces, the artists describe their personal approaches to color and process, offering insight into the creative mind. - Stunning examples of work by top jewelers and metal artists - Explains the techniques used, with text that is enlightening but not overly technical - A must-have volume for artists and collectors Nicole Bsullak studied at Vermont College, Maine College of Art, University of Utah and Cornish College of the Arts. She works in a variety of metals and alternative materials not usually associated with jewelry. Tim McCreight is a teacher at Maine College of Art in Portland and author of several books on metalsmithing, including Jewelry: Fundamentals of Metalsmithing and The Metalsmith's Book of Boxes & Lockets. They both live in Portland, Maine.
