FOS - The Found Object Sandwich - Personal Photographic Pin Making

with Thomas Mann
Virtual Two-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
October 22 & 29, 2021  | 3:30 - 6:00PM ET
 
 
Description:
Thomas Mann began making wearable photo construction pieces in the 70s when  he was fascinated with using found materials to create objects of quiet meaning.  That fascination eventually led to the creation of a design direction that became 
Techno-Romantic Jewelry Objects™, marking a pivot point in Mann’s success as  an artist. Immersed in an age of ever expanding info and technology, it’s hard to  remember that we’re human. Techno-Romantic jewelry objects are everyday  talismans that talk about our connection to, and separation from, technology.  
 
Our experience in this pandemic is one where many of us have lost loved ones,  or collectively has had us reflecting on loss and meaning. If that is your personal  experience as well, you might find the making of a celebratory photographic  wearable memorial pin to be a loving redemptive exercise. It would be Tom’s  distinct honor to guide you in the process as you learn several unusual and  useful metalsmithing techniques intrinsic to Mann’s Found Object Sandwich  making process.
 
 * Sawing is the most critical skill needed going into this workshop. If your sawing  isn’t great, OR you have a bad attitude about it, consider Tom’s Learn to Saw  instruction for a MENTAL & MANUAL tune-up about THE most important tool in the  jeweler’s repertoire
