From 2-D To 3-D: Hollow Forms and Fabricated Vessels

July 22, 2018 – July 28, 2018

Erica Bello

This workshop takes students through various fabrication and soldering scenarios. Starting with simple hollow forms, students learn to perfect their torch skills and create 3-Dimensional objects from flat sheet. Metal forming, scoring and bending are introduced to explore more complex forms. You will work to combine these construction techniques to craft a lidded/hinged vessel as a final project. This course is designed for students with basic metalsmithing skills.


Erica Bello studied metalsmithing and jewelry design at the Rochester Institute of Technology’s School for American Crafts. She has received national recognition for her work in the form of awards, publications and lectures focused on her process. Bello lives in Baltimore, Maryland where she works as a studio artist and instructor at the Baltimore Jewelry Center.
