Fold-forming copper — from the internet
‘Fold-forming’ is a technique of metalworking whereby metal is folded, repeatedly forged and annealed, and unfolded, at which stage it generally has a dramatic new three-dimensional form. The technique was invented in the late 1980s by Charles Lewton-Brain. Charles’ work has been recognized by the British Museum research lab, and a 1991 Rolex Award, and in 2012 he was the recipient of the Governor General Award for his contribution to Canadian arts. He is associate professor, jewellery in the School of Craft and Emerging Media at the Alberta College of Art and Design. See youtube.com/ watch?v=OBRnJp8gKys.
