Jewelry + Metals: Recycling + Renovation
Course No. MET 257-357-457 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Kathy Buszkiewicz
This course is more relevant in the world today than ever before. We explore the concepts of recycling and up-cycling as means of design development and expression through artwork. Various discarded materials, used or found objects that have been previously created to serve some other purpose will be reused to create work. Students will also revisit ideas through existing objects within our culture and re-address an individual’s previous work. Formats of the work in this course may take the shape of jewelry, wearables, or objects. Students must come prepared during the semester with found objects, thrift store or flea market finds, thrown away materials and be willing to alter them. Research and concept development are part of the weekly dialog. Slides and samples will supplement the course. Demonstrations will be provided as needed. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives. No previous metalworking skills are needed.
