Bill Seeley, president and founder of Reactive Metals Studio, Inc. will help you explore the attributes of niobium. Our work will center on the surface embellishment of niobium. This ductile and easily manipulated metal is highly anodizable. Working with color charts developed in class to highly textured and colorful samples the class will progress through a series of demonstrations and power point presentations.

Coverage will include: safety, anodizing, masking, selective removal, and graphics. The history and development of the instructor and Reactive Metals Studio is presented in slides along with the work of a broad range of artists. The participants will be encouraged to produce materials for later use in finished jewelry. The metals kit will provide a range of sheet and wire products for exploration. Anodizers, masking supplies and other materials will be provided.
