The act of carving leads naturally to a different visual vocabulary of form than that of fabrication in sheet and wire. This class will explore the carving of non-metal materials. This could be wood, plastic or ©Richlite (a material comprised of re- cycled paper in a natural resin). Additionally, the class will cover metal fabrication processes, utilizing silver, gold or copper-based alloys, in order to embellish and make functional the carved forms. Students will be free to make pieces of jewelry or small-scale objects. Metal processes will include the use of stakes and hammers, small-scale forging, soldering and cold joinery. This course is designed for students with a basic knowledge of jewelry construction techniques, i.e .basic soldering, forming and finishing of metal.
