Description

Treasures of the Sea Pendent - Copper ElectroformingThis class explores the endless possibilities of copper electroforming.  The class focuses on deposition of copper onto porous and nonporous materials, reactive materials and assembly into a single project. This class will combine organic materials such as shells, fossils, feathers and plant material with inorganic material such as metal, glass, rocks, and minerals.

Techniques for framing, setting and protecting elements and chemical reactions with electroforming solution will be discussed. Skills covered include basic electroforming, texturing and stone setting, sealing techniques, framing, and gluing techniques.

Class will break twice during the day to provide time for bonding, and drying; projects will need to process overnight to provide for proper copper deposition. Students will return Sunday Morning to clean and polish projects.  Arrangements may be made for mailing of projects if students are unable to return.

After a career as a scientist Terry Henry answered her hearts call to turn to art full time and since November 2011 she hasn’t looked back! Terry is a native of California from the community of Los Gatos, she attended college at San Jose State University where she started out as and art student, however her concern for making a living resulted in a career path change to earth science; though all the while nourishing the desire to be and artist. Terry’s art embraces science, as she is best known for her electroforming work, which combines real flowers, insects, fossils with inorganic materials and her lampwork floral designs. Terry’s extensive teaching experience to adult learns in the field of art and science makes her class easy to understand and follow.
