Jewelry + Metals: Casting
Course No. MET268/368/468 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Hollern
As a basic technology in the jewelry and metals field, casting provides the opportunity to explore complex and dynamic form, surface and texture, the organic and geometric language. Technologies and materials from ancient to the cutting edge provide new and exciting possibilities for models, molds, parts. The course will address concepts and technologies of basic waxwork and model making, CAD/CAM, and casting processes to challenge students to apply new techniques and technologies to create work that remains unique to their direction. From fundamental wax carving and found objects to 3D modeling and output to the Solidscape™ 3D wax printer and the CNC milling machine, the course will cultivate new skills and opportunities for the creation of new work. Vacuum, centrifugal, gravity, and rubber mold casting are addressed to provide a range of opportunities for tangible objects. A wide variety of metals, plastic resins, and rubber provide endless possibilities. Readings, essays, and discussion offer the integrated seminar experience. Visiting artists, field trips, and presentations will supplement the activity in the department. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
CIA representatives will be at many events this fall. We'd love to meet you and discuss your future!
