What's Included

Prerequisites: Metals I & II This is a metalworking technique in which malleable metal is ornamented and shaped by hammering with special tools from the reverse side to create a design in low relief. The process is sculpting forms in sheet metal using pitch, hammers and chasing tools. This procedure is accomplished by pushing the metal from behind with chasing tools to form height and depth, using the plasticity of the metal by forming shapes by degrees. This ancient form of working metal offers diversity of artistic expression while being fairly inexpensive to do. This process is complex enough to make intricate and delicate pieces which would be impossible to create using any other method. They are surprisingly lightweight! This time honored style of metalworking is experiencing a resurgence as modern Metalsmiths are discovering the creative potential and exciting uses for this venerable art form.
