"This book is about how metalsmiths and jewelers can take advantage of the intrinsic characteristics of metal, understood since antiquity, and employ a mechanical device known for nearly 200 years to make objects by hand. Die forming, as described here, does not restrict or replace hand work. In fact, the die-forming process requires additional skill and knowledge in the making of dies, and in controlling their use in the press. Die forming extends the possibilities of what one can make and opens new avenues of exploration. It is a continuation of the tradition of innovation in craft." --introduction.
