Fusion: Jewellery and Ceramics - CAEL2081

Year - 2019

Fusion refers to the merging or melting of different materials into one. Working across jewellery and ceramics, in this unit of study you consider this concept also in relationship to the construction of an object from multiple parts. In this sense the artist becomes alchemist, scientist, or musician, mixing, constructing and blending to create a new object. By experimenting with processes of moulding, you explore notions of multiplicity, the original, the copy and the archetype. This unit addresses the development of conceptual, formal and aesthetic approaches in making.
