In this three day workshop explore the technique of chasing on a vessel form to create embellishment through designs and textures. In place of traditional pitch we will be using a microcrystalline bronze sculptor's wax. we will also discuss how to make your own chasing tools and how to finish an edge by soldering on a wire rim.
