Über diesen Titel
Fonts, statues, church spires, gutters, memorial urns and even coffins: throughout history, lead has proved itself worthy of an endless number of uses. Originally published in 1909, Lawrence Weaver's survey charts both the evolving history and the artistry surrounding English leadwork, from ancient times to the nineteenth century. Filled with photographs and drawings of many remarkable examples, English Leadwork is a comprehensive and informative guide to the craftsmanship that helped shape a country.About the Author:
Lawrence Weaver began his working life at an architectural practice in Bristol as a sales representative selling a line of architectural fixtures and fittings. He moved on to become the London representative of a firm of ironfounders, Lockerbie and Wilkinson, who made cast-iron ware for the building trade. One of his first tasks was to revise and redesign their catalogue. Part of their trade was, naturally, rainwater goods; hopper heads, downpipes, bends and so on, plain and decorated. This appears to have stimulated his fascination for leadwork, and his sales rounds in early twentieth-century London must have given him a wonderful opportunity to see many at first hand. His interest expanded to encompass all forms of historical leadwork and he began to diligently track down and photograph examples, many of which were used to illustrate English Leadwork: Its Art and History.
