Metalsmithing

Department of Visual & Literary Arts

Metalsmithing

Metalsmithing encompasses both rich historical traditions and contemporary approaches to fabricating with non-ferrous metals such as copper, nickel silver, brass and silver. Exploration of body adornment, jewelry and small sculptural forms are supported within the Metalsmithing program. Students learn beginning skills including sawing, filing, drilling, pierce-work, dapping, milling, patinas and hydraulic press forming. Intermediate and Advanced Metalsmithing coursework builds on these basic skills by introducing enameling, centrifugal casting, fabricated hinges, many hammer forming techniques and granulation. Professional practices including documentation of artwork, writing artist statements, building a resume, and exhibition of work are an integral part of intermediate and advanced level metalsmithing courses. Students' personal artistic voices are fostered through a balance of conceptual, aesthetic and technical development in their work, bolstered by independent research and regular in-class discussion.
