Jewelry + Metals: Color

Course No. MET 260-360-460  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Gretchen Goss

The use of color in jewelry and metals presents great possibilities. This course will explore a range of approaches to the use of color and colored materials in the creation of jewelry, functional objects, and small sculpture. Beyond the classic greens and browns, we will develop and apply chemical patinas to produce a range of effects in colors and patterns. In aluminum, the electro-chemical process of anodization will allow pigment dyes to be deposited in the surface of the metal. Plastics will be presented to allow for fabrication with stock materials, casting of resins and polymers, and laminations. Other pigments such as colored-pencils, paints, and powder coating are also addressed. Extensive samples and slides supplement the course. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
