Pattern-Formed Enameled Copper Vessels
In this workshop, we celebrate the limitless potential of the jeweler's saw by exploring the ways that this versatile tool can create an intricate, precise pattern in flat sheet metal. This pattern-forming process allows the metal to be folded into a volumetric, symmetrical 3D shape. Once the vessels are formed, we can begin to play with color by fusing powdered glass onto the surface of the metal, a technique known as enameling. This workshop is a great introduction to the world of small-scale precision metalworking.
