Sculptural Utensils

Course Description

About this course

In this virtual course students will use forging and chasing techniques to develop complex, sculptural, and functional utensils. In the process, students will learn how to develop patterns for forging, make their own chisels, and interweave silversmithing and blacksmithing processes. Special focus will be placed on applying chasing and repoussé techniques to solid forms.
