Explore the process of creating 3-D objects in metal. You’ll create a silver ring or a small bronze sculpture using the lost wax casting process. We’ll carve positives in wax, create a mold and cast your finished piece in metals. Walk away with your polished metal creation and an advanced understanding of how to apply the principles of design to 3-D objects.
