Intro
(...) The design process will focus on hollow configurations in jewelry and small vessels. The description of volumes, surfaces and content, inside and outside, and the relationship of body to space, will serve as criteria for our work and discussions. (...)
The point of departure of this workshop with Peter Bauhuis is working in and with wax. You will explore the specific potentials of the material by means of kneading, cutting, dipping, melting, fusing, dripping, etc. In a second step, the wax models will be converted into metal pieces by the technique known as “lost wax casting.” The design process will focus on hollow configurations in jewelry and small vessels. The description of volumes, surfaces and content, inside and outside, and the relationship of body to space, will serve as criteria for our work and discussions.
The special traits and requisites of this process – preparing feeding channels, suitability of pieces for casting, melting temperatures, oxidations, colours of alloys – are a key part of the course and enter the process of planning and design.

Peter Bauhuis looks forward to an intensive week of collaboration with you.
