dc.description.abstract The primary objective of this creative project was the exploration into designing and creating sculptures that combine various materials in a visually pleasing way. Could these sculptures emphasize excellence in craftsmanship and sophistication of surface? Could the inherent properties of these materials be manipulated and combined in an engaging manner, which would enhance the beauty of both materials?This body of work required a variety of metalsmithing techniques including forging, mokumegane, and metal forming. This body of work also required various woodworking skills such as lathe turning and wood joint construction. There were several materials used such as exotic and domestic woods, and ferrous and non-ferrous metals. This body of work challenged my technical and conceptual abilities making me a better artist and designer, not only in metalsmithing, but also woodworking.
