CRMT 221 - Introduction to Metalsmithing

3 credits
Metal is an extremely versatile material; though hard and durable, it is quite malleable and easily worked. This course covers direct working of metal. Sheet, wire, bar, and rod are given form by hammering, seaming, and bending, etc. The majority of work is done in bronze, brass, and copper, though steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and precious metals may be used, as well. Contemporary issues addressed include the object as sculpture, process as a source material, the importance of surface and detail, and functional objects made by artists.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
