Jessica Jordan Coté | Schism Ring Revisited | Friday, February 7, 2020 | 8:00 am until 5:30 pm


A previously taught class, now in a new silhouette!  This project will focus on the design and creation of a hybrid statement ring that combines the structure of a hollow form with the dynamic movement of a spinner.  Students will be encouraged to think about form and function while exploring the possibilities of this unique take on wearable sculpture.  Techniques covered will include sizing, sawing, filing, mitering, folding, soldering, bezel making, finishing and polishing.

Out of stock

I'm interested in this class. Please add me to the waiting list.
