Artist/Blacksmith Lorelei Sims

Cover of Organic Metalworking - Volume One - The Grapevine Organic Metalworking is a
serial publication which
explores Lorelei's passion for creating functional ironwork
that emulates asymmetrical patterns found in nature.

Volume One features information, insight, instruction, and projects inspired by The Grapevine.

In addition to traditional blacksmithing, modern applications for moving and shaping metal are presented.

Organic Metalworking can be  used to describe the aesthetic composition of Lorelei's work,
but it also refers to the natural
development of her skills.
Table of Contents from Organic Metalworking - Volume One - The Grapevine 72 pages with over
300 full-color photographs
that illustrate techniques
used for recreating vines,
tendrils, leaves, and grape
bunches in metal.

Geared for the reader who
is familiar with how metal
moves, but would like
to expand their capabilities.
The use of varied tools and
equipment are discussed,
including electric and pneumatic
hand tools, welding, plasma
cutting, and of course,
traditional blacksmithing.

Includes 15 projects with step
by step instructions, as well
as a few images of Lorelei's commissioned ironwork to
provide inspiration to the reader.
