Metal Clay Fusion by Gordon Uyehara
"You and I both know that metal clay is all the rage right now. What makes Gordon Uyehara's book different than all the rest? He's a master at his art, and one of the most renowned and popular metal clay artists in the world! In Metal Clay Fusion, Gordon covers all the basics and some really cool advanced skills from carving to developing your designer's eye. I always like a jewelry book with great step-by-step photos. The photography is lovely, and the whole book has this beautiful glow and positive feeling. Want to learn how to create an intricate focal bead? Or a ring with a hinged top? These are part of this lovely collection of projects." -Lorelei Eurto
"I just got a chance to read Gordon's book and I would say that he has written the best Metal Clay book to date. He is the consummate artist and I am amazed at the finished pieces he produces and the techniques that he reveals. When I first saw his work I was impressed and I hoped he would write a book some day and it looks like he dedicated a lot of time to putting out a work that is sure to be a classic and go a long way to improving the results that his readers will get if they use his techniques. If the average metal clay artist is a 5 using a scale of 10, then using what they will learn from Gordon will easily take them to a 7 to 8 level in no time. (On that same scale, Gordon's work is a 15!) -Joe P.
