Along the way, special attention is given to anticlastic forming and the vocabulary first introduced by their mentor, Heikki Seppä. Creative Metal Forming utilizes 35 detailed exercises to explain the basics as well as advanced nuances in each category. Metalsmiths Michael Good and Nancy Linkin have each contributed demonstrations of their forming techniques.
