Astrid Riedel’s glass work will take your breath away! And see her glass necklaces here. I can barely take in their beauty all at once, I want to savor each image. I really can’t imagine the level of skill and technique required to create these masterpieces.

Hinges, Doors, Books and Lockets

Friday, August 15, 2014

Using copper sheeting, students will design a hinged locket. Students may bring a personal photo, image or favorite paper to place in the locket, or use papers and images that Mary has selected. Mica is used to protect the image and cold connections hold it in place. Students will make one locket with a copper back and a sterling silver front and will have material to make more books and lockets using just the copper. Patinas, texturing, and metal applications, including embossing will also be covered. The focus of this class is to master the hinge using tabs to create a variety of moveable doors. It is a low-tech process with fabulous results.

Students will make several different designs.
