Cincinnati, Ohio: The Contemporary Arts Center, 1993. 8vo. 186 pp. " The 54 artists in the exhibition range from well -known senior practioners in the field to emerging artists whose contributions have yet to be fully assessed. Representing the range and diversity of metalworking today. These artists share a passion for the materials and techniques of metalworking and an ability to communicate through the work in a way that transcends the medium, examining metal as a vehicle to communicate personal expression. " I wanted this catalogue to look and feel like an artist's journal. Therefore, the piece is small. making it easy to hold. Its size provides for a more intimate exchange of the artists' thinking and their work with each person who holds the book in their hands. Responding to the phrase " precious metals" I wanted the book to feel precious reflecting the importance of this exhibition" Lori Siebert, Siebert Design. An absolutely exquisite exhibition catalog the likes of which are rare indeed. Fine.
