Foundation Courses

Jewelry & Metals: Casting & Modeling

Course No. MET367.1  Credits: 3.0

Casting and Modeling is a hybrid course designed to address the connection of modeling and casting. As a basic technology in the jewelry and metals field, casting provides the opportunity to explore complex form, surface and texture, dynamic change of plane and line, and everything from organic to geometric aesthetic.  Modeling ranges from carving, sculpting, fabrication, and direct casting of organic objects and materials, to CAD models and molds made in the department through machining and 3D printing. Students experience three different casting methods: gravity, centrifugal, and vacuum, all of which provide unique opportunities to create jewelry, objects, and small sculpture.  Jewelry and metalworking techniques are presented to complement the current level and experience of the group. Independent work is encouraged. Readings, essays, and discussion offer the integrated seminar experience.  Visiting artists, historical and contemporary examples, field trips, and presentations supplement the class. Open to Jewelry and Metals majors and all electives. 3 credits.
