Jewelry + Metals: Ceremony + Ritual

Course No. MET 261-361-461  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Kathy Buszkiewicz

Consider the importance of the objects we use in specialized events, ceremonies, and our daily rituals. How does ceremony and ritual fit into the context of the 21st century and our society? We explore historic and worldwide references to ceremonial and ritual objects through the slide presentations, videos, and actual works. Students create objects based on individual exploration and interest relevant to the subject. Additional independent work is also required. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
