Arts and Crafts Movement Metalwork

The text on these pages comes from "Art Metalwork with Inexpensive Equipment" by Payne and was written in 1914.  This was during the early days of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the USA and reflects the attitudes and materials available at the time.  We have rearranged the information for effective presentation on the web and added occasional notes where things the book mentions are no longer true or correct.  However, the links on the left are approximately in the same order as the chapters of the book.

Who will find the site valuable: 

The Arts and Crafts Movement was much larger than copper metalwork and home furnishings.  There was an entire philosophy of life and living involved.  This philosphy clearly resonated with many people because the movement swept across the USA and lasted for many years.
