So….. I assisted with another one of David Clemons’ workshops. This past weekend he had a workshop at the Arkansas Arts Center. They have a new metalsmithing studio! It was like going home, it was really nice. And I love the new space.
But today this is what we did…..Compressing a shape with a Hydraulic Press.
Creating an undulating lip to a cup.
And casting. I had to handsaw the shape out of the wood. The wood is saturated with water before casting.
This student is making the pigs head featured in this video about Casting in Pewter filmed at UALR Applied Design
David has a talk tomorrow at the Arkansas Arts Center. I’m going to go.
