www.suelacydesigns.com (blog: SueLacy Wired.) These are selections of my foldform work from the year 2012. Foldforming is a metal technique developed by world renowned goldsmith and educator, Charles Lewton-Brain. The technique results in three dimensional organic designs.
I’m fortunate to have learned foldforming from Charles at the Center for Metal Arts in Florida, New York. He visits annually to offer a 4-day conference / workshop that is simply off the charts. The next one is Aug 2-5, 2013; for information contact firstname.lastname@example.org . Seating is limited but I don’t mind sharing the news since my seat is already reserved. Can’t wait-- this will be my third visit!
I was the official live blogger of the 5th Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference in 2012. If you’d like the insider’s view to last year’s shindigs, here you go… press your nose up to the studio glass and catch some precious moments. www.suelacydesigns.com/1/post/2012/08/blog-index-for-5th-annual-charles-lewton-brain-conference.html .
Metal artists: The annual Lewton-Brain Foldform Award competition coincides with the conference each year. If you want to compete, stay tuned to www.centerformetalarts.com for this year’s details. View this video to see the 2012 results: http://youtu.be/r2s0d1HqU7Q
Over the past couple years I’ve worked with Charles and Center for Metal Arts to build community around foldforming. Visit the public Facebook page at www.facebook.com/foldforming. Or if you are a metalsmith join us at Foldforming Central, a specialty group for metalsmiths around the world at http://www.facebook.com/foldforming . (Contact me directly via Facebook to request membership if your profile doesn’t show your metal work.)
Thanks for visiting!
