Jewelry + Metals: Production
Jewelry and object production is a complex and demanding avenue that can be navigated by many strategies. We explore a full range of production design, concepts, and technologies with a focus on wearable jewelry and functional objects. We address research, trends and concepts, ideation, design & redesign, production techniques & technologies, marketing, presentation, packaging, time management, pricing, and artist/gallery relationships. Challenges include short and long-term projects based on demonstrations, research, and readings. The course is supplemented with presentations, examples of actual works, and visiting artists who make their living as production artists/designers. Ultimately you will conceptualize, design, and create one or more lines. The course includes preparation for shows and galleries, and participation in the Student Art Sale in December. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives. One course in Jewelry + Metals recommended.
