METALS SUMMER SESSION 5
JULY 16–28, 2023
Explorations in Sculptural Chasing
The art of chasing is a love language between illustration and sculpture. In this workshop we’ll integrate the best of both worlds as we explore detailed relief work in sheet metal. We’ll mix elements of raising, repoussé, and the Japanese technique of uchidashi to create a knowledge base of low- and high-relief work. Students can expect to complete at least two projects in copper. The first will be a structured follow-along design matched to the individual’s skill level. The second project, also a follow-along design, will be assigned to match each person’s interests. All levels. Lower metals studio.
