Instructor: E. Douglas Wunder

Skill Level: All skill levels

This workshop is intended to familiarize one with the understanding of how to transform titanium and niobium into a piece of jewelry. This will involve creating an object on paper that incorporates; aesthetics, function, and how the piece will be constructed. These concepts will then be developed into metal objects using the techniques of sawing, stamping, and shearing. We will create wearable art pieces based on discussion and hands-on experience. A layering process will be introduced demonstrating multiple possibilities of assembly. A strong focus of the class also will be on coloring metal with heat and an electrical process of anodizing. The workshop is open to all skill levels. Participants are encouraged to come with an imaginative, experimental approach to jewelry making.

Please note *** A materials fee of $50 is due to the instructor at the time of the class.

About the Instructor:

My experience derives from working in jewelry design and production for over 30 years. The jewelry pieces involve constructed forms in mixed metals primarily titanium,
assembled in layers, and cold connected with rivets to give the finished piece a three-dimensional effect. Inspiration draws from nature and technological objects. I travel extensively throughout the United States demonstrating, showing, and selling my work at exhibitions and art shows such as The ACC Craft Shows, The Chicago Old Town Art Fair, Longs Park Art and Craft Festival in Lancaster, PA.

Recent exhibitions include Wearable Expressions, CraftForms, and The Mesa Art Museum’s Contemporary Crafts Exhibition. My work has appeared in several publications, such as Making Metal
Jewelry, Wrap, Stitch, Fold and Rivet, Showcase 500 Art Necklaces, Ornament Magazine, and Art Jewelry Magazine. My work has garnered a variety of recognition in 2017: The Saul Bell Award as a Finalist, Wearable Expressions for Honorable Mention, Krasl Art on the Bluff, First Place in Category, and The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsman for The Resolved Design Award.
