CRMT 228 - Metal Furniture

3 credits
This course questions our cultural assumptions about furniture. Are common furniture forms dictated by functional requirements or arbitrary choices that have become traditional? Metal (steel, aluminum, bronze) is used for its strength and versatility; other materials are combined with metal according to student ideas and interests. Techniques include bending/forming of rod, tube and plate, oxyacetylene welding, brazing, mechanical fasteners/tap and die, riveting, and light blacksmithing. Typical student projects include small tables, lamps, chairs, outdoor/public furnishings, and experimental forms.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
