Jewelry + Metals: Forming + Fabrication

Course No. MET 259-359-459  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Hollern

This course is designed to develop skills in forming nonferrous metal through the various metalsmithing processes of raising, stretching, seaming, snarling, crimping, and pitch work used to create volumetric forms for functional and nonfunctional objects as well as jewelry. Problems are presented to challenge all levels of students, recognize the direction of the group and include singular object-driven problems, along with discussion of formal and conceptual issues. Presentations, visiting artists, slides, and actual objects supplement the course. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
