'Marriage of Metal' (or simply 'Married Metals') is an inlay technique in which component pieces of metal are fitted together in a jigsaw puzzle fashion. Using a 'palette' of non-ferrous metals, each having its own distinct color, participants will learn to create a wide range of striking patterns as well as two-and three-dimensional images. Topics to be covered will include: design development (geometric patterns; 2D and 3D designs; etc.); transferring paper patterns to metal surfaces; sawing, fitting and soldering tricks and techniques; incorporation of married metal panels into finished pieces and special construction considerations; and, final finishes and patinas.
