Details

Learn the ancient techniques of chasing and repousse from an Italian-trained master silversmith. Repousse and chasing form a two-step process for shaping and embellishing metal with raised bas-relief designs. The fluid and dimensional qualities achieved can be a captivating and dramatic addition to your work. Learn how to understand and then utilize the plasticity of metal in order to shape and mold metal surfaces. Next, learn how to embellish your chased design with gold and fabricate the structure into a pendant. Traditional techniques are presented along with an overview of tools and materials, all with an Italian cultural and historical perspective. Watch frequent demonstrations, immerse yourself in metal, and make a chased, hollow formed silver pendant embellished with gold to take home. Prerequisite: Fab 3 or experience. Davide Bigazzi spent his early teens as apprentice to Bino Bini, the celebrated Florentine metalsmith and sculptor. During that period Davide assisted in commissions for the Vatican, banks, and churches. Davide’s handcrafted jewelry and holloware are a blend of contemporary artistry and old world craftsmanship that echoes back to his native Florence. Visit dbcollection.net.
