Using pre-made spun copper vessels this workshop will explore how to embellish the form with designs and textures created using the technique known as chasing. In place of traditional pitch we will be using a microcrystalline wax, one commonly used in bronze casting. During the course of the workshop we will also cover the basics of making one's own chasing tools, and participants will have the opportunity to make some as well. Students will finish the vessel edge by soldering on a wire rim.
