Fold-form­ing cop­per — from the in­ter­net

The Shed - - Sculptor -

‘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.
