The first semester (2360) includes an in–depth approach to acquiring basic skills used in the fabrication of nonferrous metals (copper, brass, nickel, sterling, gold). 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. Integration of elements with other forms and processes is stressed. Prerequisites: ARTS 1301
