Copper Forming

I have been experimenting with copper sheet foldforming techniques. I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has made a copper foldformed bowl.

What I did on Spring Break!

| | | | | | | |

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share what I got to do on my Spring Break (been taking classes at the College). I had the opportunity to go out to Ireland for 9 days, and spent 5 of those days with Brian at the Bregin Clarke Studio School of Metalsmithing! It was a great time! It was nice to see some of the friends I made there some years back. The Guinness was AMAZING too!

Is anyone having as much fun doing foldforming as I am?
I first started doing mild steel forged hot, lots of hard work holding on to the bowl.
I like the copper much better (cold) and have done some sterling silver and one small shot glass in bronze. I would like your input on what is out there.

My husband is helping me out in getting better quality photos for juried shows. I'm very happy with the quality of the photo for these "new to the technique" earrings.
