Students will customize the top of a small box with their own detailed design using a metal embossing technique. Choosing between a copper or aluminum colored top each design will be a unique creation utilizing line, shape, and pattern.
This project explores working with metal, a unique material that responds to the pressure of a ballpoint pen to create dimension and texture. Students will learn about geometric and organic design elements which they will use to create their repetitive patterns.
Metal Fabricators/Welders use special tools and materials to create functional and decorative metal creations. A precise and mathematical approach is needed for functional welding and more fluid, expressive techniques are used for artistic creations
