Intro to Jewelry and Metals
Work in this studio involves the field of jewelry and metalsmithing, its history, contemporary issues and activities, and the use and understanding of materials and processes. As a medium, metal presents more variables and potential than any other material. It can serve to produce sound, light, heat, motion, to present color, texture, and form, to store and release energy, and provide strength, and durability, all of which increase the options in your work. An introduction to the field of Jewelry and Metals includes the foundation techniques and skills necessary to work with non-ferrous metals associated with jewelry, utilitarian and small-scale objects. The course includes a rich collection of slide presentations, thorough demonstrations, technical exercises, assignments, discussion, and critiques. Throughout the semester we will explore the use of metal as a medium for artistic expression. A strong emphasis will be placed on your ability to use design principles, aesthetic considerations, character and emotional content, idea and concept to achieve a visual statement. Required of first semester Jewelry and Metals majors. Open to all electives. Offered fall and spring.
