Arline M. Fisch, Professor of Art Emerita at San Diego State University, is an artist and jeweler working primarily in precious metals. She exhibits work nationally and internationally. Her work melds jewelry, sculpture, and clothing, and she incorporates the structure of textiles and fiber craft into metal-based pieces that are often inspired by ancient cultures and the natural world. Fisch is the recipient of numerous honors, including an honorary doctorate from Skidmore; a gold medal from the American Craft Council; the Lifetime Achievement Award in Crafts from the National Museum of Women in the Arts; and multiple Fulbright fellowships. Her work is represented in numerous museum and private collections.From Library Journal:
Weaving and knitting may not seem to be likely techniques for metalworkers, but fine wire and strips of metal can be made pliable enough to be worked this way. Fisch gives detailed instructions for metal weaving, knitting, crocheting, braiding, lacemaking, and basketry. A section of historical examples and a pictorial survey of works by contemporary artists is included. This book would have been improved with more color photographs to bring out contrasts, but it is excellent otherwise.
