Spend 5 days furthering your chasing and repoussé skills on a three dimensional object. Students will create an organic design that is transformed onto a spun vessel through the process of snarling (a curved stake that is place inside an object and hammered).  

Day 1- Students will create their own snarling stake and a wooden base to chase their cup once filled with pitch.

Day 2- Students will transfer their design onto their silver cup and begin to snarl.

Day 3- Finish snarling, and begin to fill the inside of their cup with pitch, cool, and begin to chase.

Day 4- Finish out chasing.

Day 5- Students will construct a simple base and stem to finish out their cup and do final patinas and polishing.

At the end of this class students can participate in a Italian style gathering with food, and drink out of the goblets they have created.

Kit fee will include a fine silver spun vessel to chase, a stem and a foot/base in sterling silver; plus the use of tools, equipment and pitch. Tools and pitch are availible for purchase during class.
