Lives Shaped by Steel

Lives Shaped By Steel

Celebrating East Coast Outdoor Metal Artists
By Nancy B. Zastrow

Metal art can bring life to its surroundings. A gate or railing may so perfectly adorn a garden or building that the place would seem bare and ordinary without it. This book is about that kind of metal and the artists who dream it and create it. Interviews with over forty artists tell how they started, what inspires them, and how they approach their work. Color photos show example of gates, railing, and fountains that beautifully complement their settings. These smiths love what they do, and do it against all odds, leading and leaving lives enriched.
