We are a group of artist/makers from Cal State Long Beach who are inspired by metalworking. We form, joint, hammer, bend, recycle, weave, and you name it! We are here to share our thoughts, to network, to critique, to help, and to explore.
I received my MFA in 2008 form SDSU and my thesis show was in fall 2007. It is a rigorous program. Sondra Sherman and Helen Shirk are the two professors for the area. They are both very different which makes it a great combination. The faculty in the metals program and art department are a great group of mentors. The school encourages interdisciplinary work which is how i got into mixing fibers with metals in my thesis. I would say that conceptual work rather than design is the current focus of department. The grad studio accommodates 8 students. I suggest you make a visit to the school to see the facilities and get a feel for the school.
