Anticlastic raising is a revolutionary technique with vast design possibilities. It offers a whole new vocabulary of metalworking that results in sensuous lightweight hollow structures. Learn these simple yet sophisticated techniques directly from Michael Good, the master goldsmith who made the process famous. Learn to use specialized stakes and hammers to move a sheet of metal into lightweight yet strong flexible structures with a sensuous elegance. Through his guidance you will create a series of sophisticated forms as a basis for new directions in your work.
Prerequisite: Fabrication 2, Metalsmithing 1 or experience.
Michael Good will also teach Advanced Anticlastic Raising.
Michael Good, of Rockport, Maine, is one of the most successful jewelry designers of our time. Largely self-taught, Michael worked with Heikki Seppä the developer of the sinosoidal stake and the concept of inverse raising, and pushed the techniques to new levels in his own work. Michael has won numerous awards and his work is sold through the finest jewelry stores and galleries.
