Foundation Courses

Jewelry + Metals: Pewter

Course No. MET 270-370-470  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Matthew Hollern

Pewter is a material that lies somewhere between metal and clay. It is an extremely versatile metal, beautiful for functional objects, jewelry, and sculpture. Pewter affords dynamic, intuitive, and direct work in metal. The course includes pattern making, fabrication, casting, slumping, forging, spinning, and other forming methods. Additional materials and techniques from self-directed applications to advanced studio technologies, including CAD for pattern making and design will supplement the course to provide new challenges, facilitate design, and present new means of fabrication. Readings, essays, and discussion offer the integrated seminar experience. Projects recognize the direction of the group and include singular object-driven problems, formal issues, and conceptual challenges. Open to sophomore Jewelry + Metals majors and all electives.
