Intro
Supplementing hand work by subcontracting to industry can expand options and increase production and profit margins.
Industrial Resources for the Studio Artist
Most studio jewelers find it necessary to have a production line of more affordable work. Supplementing hand work by subcontracting to industry can expand options and increase production and profit margins. We’ll use hand processes to design and fabricate production prototypes. Then, through lectures, students will learn how to make creative use of available and easily accessible industrial processes, including casting, laser and waterjet cutting, commercial photoetching, etc. We’ll also explore alternative materials especially glass and coordinate some activities with Kristin Beeler’s class held concurrently. Advanced students will benefit most from the class.

No knowledge of digital technology is needed.
Class Code 03MA
