Flatware doesn’t have to be flat! By combining forging and chasing, artists can create dynamic and sculptural forms that defy expectations. In this course, students will design, forge, and chase a sculptural utensil. In the process, students will learn how to develop patterns for forging, make their own chisels, and interweave silversmithing and blacksmithing processes. Special focus will be placed on the role of tool making and modification in chasing processes.
