dc.description.abstract This project focused on the integration of metal and book forms. Each piece addressed infertility and how this condition affects a couple, both physically and socially. The seven projects are connected through content interest and metal-smithing skills. The techniques used include: casting, sheet construction, enameling, hinge construction, resin insets, xerography and silver etching with Image-On. In additional to the metal-based artworks, this creative project also includes six large-scale photographs to illuminate the experiences of infertile individuals and couples. Three contemporary techniques - de-enameling, Image-On transfers, and Xerography - were used for the creation of Based on a True Story. This was the first usage of Image-On transfers and de-enameling during a creative project at Ball State University.
