April Bower | Cuttlefish Bone: Not Just For Bird Brains | Saturday, June 11, 2016 | 9 am until 4 pm
You will use cuttlefish bone, (I am sure you have seen one inside a bird cage), to cast a unique wood grain textured pendant in sterling silver. Learn the artful surprise of carving and pouring molten silver into a cuttlefish bone, with option to finish a pendant or continue with multiple castings, each building on the experience of the previous, with up to two or more carvings and three pours. Your own successes, as well as missteps, and those of other students, will lead you to some discoveries that will make cuttlebone casting a new favorite.
Combine elements to create a finished piece, or cast elements to be used in future creations. Carving, pressing in models, creating pedestals for stones, and fusing Argentium elements to your castings will be demonstrated.
