What happens when molten metal is poured over everyday household items such as pasta, coffee beans, or into a hand carved cuttlefish bone? This course explores the organic properties molten metal takes through primitive casting methods. Students will explore how these various forms can be translated into jewellery objects. Students will be required to purchase their own metals, which are available at the Centre.

Her work is a reflection of the diverse cultural elements of her birthplace of Colombia and of her travels throughout India, Australia and Kenya.
