The progression of techniques from sawing, riveting, soldering and bezel stone–setting to refining is combined with the development of design and aesthetic consideration. The second semester (2361) surveys a variety of casting processes, such as cuttlebone, investing, burnout and clean–up. Emphasis is on matrix selection and form/textural development.
