Study of Art & Metalsmithing in the United Kingdom & Philadelphia. In order to combine traditional metals skills with 3D Printing media Read more
This project was successfully funded on April 14, 2014.
About this project
I found an awesome, intensive metals workshop hosted by Temple University that spans the UK & Philadelphia, PA. By the end of this program I plan on creating a new body of work utilizing both traditional metal working skills and 3D printing methods.
My goal is to raise $1500 to help pay for airfare and living expenses while abroad.
- Four weeks jam packed with adventure!
- London to Scotland, visiting art museums, the Glasgow School of Art, lots of galleries, artist studios, shows and more!
- I will constantly be sketching and planning out a piece of art inspired by my travels
Getting constructive feedback by Instructors at the Glasgow School of Art, master metalsmiths & silversmiths!
- Working hands-on with metalsmiths in Philadelphia. Receiving additional instruction and learning new techniques.

3D Printing? How are the rewards made?
3D printing is the process of creating objects by depositing material in a layering process. It is a process I love to use in my art to quickly create tangible models & final renditions.The ring and earrings are created with a greenery green PLA. PLA is a new thermoplastic material I have been experimenting with that yields vibrant colors, is durable and Eco Friendly! [Derived from corn, PLA is one of the most environmentally friendly 3D printing materials]
