The Metals Studio engages with both contemporary and historical skill-sets and practices in jewelry, metalsmithing, and small-scale fabrication processes. Students are supported in realizing their artistic and conceptual goals in tandem with gaining practical skills. From design to prototyping to production, the shop supports a wide-range of material-based processes. Repoussé and chasing, mold-making and casting, stone-cutting and setting, welding and enameling, can be seamlessly integrated with digital technologies and conceptually-driven methodologies.
