On today's program, I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak with Nancy ‘Megan’ Corwin; see: http://nancymegancorwin.com, for more information. Megan holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, MFA in Art Metals and a BA, in Art/Ethnomusicology from Eckerd College, Florida. Megan is an accomplished and committed practitioner in the art of chasing and repoussé. Brynmorgen Press will shortly publish Megan's title ‘Chasing and Repousse: Methods Ancient and Modern’. The techniques of chasing and repoussé are traditionally used to add form, decoration and detail to the surface of a piece of hollowware or jewelry. Sheet metal, hollow-formed metal, flatware, jewelry and sculptures can all be chased (textured and refined from the front with steel tools called chasing tools and using a chasing hammer), and worked from the back with rounded-faced steel, wood or brass tools, which is repoussé. Please join us for what is likely to be a fun and informative conversation with Megan.
