The Florida Society of Goldsmiths South and South Florida Jewelry Arts Guild invite you to share an evening with internationally acclaimed metal smith, Nancy Megan Corwin, on November 3rd, 5:30pm – 7:30pm, at Chamber South, 6410 SW 80th St, in South Miami. There is no charge for this event.
Megan Corwin is a jewelry/metal smith, teacher and writer in the field of arts metal -Chasing and Repousse. Come and learn and be inspired by this beautiful jewelry. Megan will be speaking about her jewelry and design process.
According to Corwin, “… The process of organic metalsmithing, in which the material
exhibits a sense of movement and shows the hand of the maker, is at the heart of my work. I express this aesthetic by using the ancient techniques of chasing (surface detailing and texturing) and repousse (to punch sheet metal from the back to create volume). I share with artisans from all ages a process that is one of the most intimate conversations with an inanimate material that exists in metalsmithing. The repetitive hammering used to make these forms and marks in the metal has become my heartbeat and my breath.”
The evening will conclude with a raffle to raise funds for future FSG projects.
