Metalsmithing & Jewelry
Metalsmithing & Jewelry embraces a wide range of approaches in developing work that includes jewelry, sculpture, design architectural work, home furnishings, and vessels.
Metalsmithing and Jewelry instructs students in design, bench and studio practice, digital technologies, and business and project management. Students learn to work with metal through research and project-based experimentation that challenges them to expand their material vocabulary and explore innovative ideas. Our expansive studios facilitate a range of processes including forged iron, nonferrous metalsmithing, casting, fabrication, enamels and working with alternative materials. And CCS is one of only a handful of institutions in the United States that offers significant coursework in blacksmithing and decorative iron.
A degree in art and design can lead to multiple creative careers. Courses relevant to jewelry design, forged iron, nonferrous metalsmithing, as well as alternative materials, casting, fabrication, and enamels challenge students to expand their creative potential and reach new conceptual horizons that explore innovative ideas.
