Ford Hallam creates Japanese metalworking series

Ford Hallam, an award-winning artist working with Japanese
metalsmithing techniques, has started a Kickstarter campaign to
produce a series of six books on this little known subject.

Ford explains…

"After what seems like a lifetime of saying I’m going to do it I’ve
finally committed myself. I’ve just launched a Crowdfunding campaign
on Kickstarter to help me begin the production of a series of 7
volumes that will contain everything I know about Classical Japanese
Decorative Metalwork.

The completed series will present for the first time in any
language, even Japanese, a comprehensive introduction to Japanese
decorative metalwork techniques, materials and processes. This will
be the seminal work on the subject and one that I hope will be of
use to craftspeople, collectors, academics and curators. [See Ford’s

Hi all,

Just backed this and figured people here would be interested in it -
and it’s about to expire, unfunded so I figure it needs all the help
it can get…
