My Guest this Thursday, August 2nd at 3 p.m. PDT/6EDT on MetalSmith BenchTalk is metalsmith, machinist, tool designer, jeweler, and teacher Brian Meek, the Production Manager at Knew Concepts.
 
About Brian: A metalsmith since the age of 15, Brian has spent his life mastering a number of techniques. Having studied at Syracuse University, as well as City of London Polytechnic, he rounded off his technical training at the Cranbrook Academy of Art with a Masters of Fine Art in Metalsmithing.
 
An international award winner, he has exhibited internationally, and published numerous papers and articles on such topics as Korean damascene, married metals, and improvements to jeweler’s tools. Known for his ability to turn the most difficult techniques into simple projects, his expertise on areas such as reactive metals and jewelry equipment are regularly sought out. 
 
Brian has taught jewelry to a variety of audiences, from university students to fellow jewelers in workshops. He spent 12 years teaching at Santa Barbara City College's Adult-Ed program -- widely recognized as one of the best community based jewelry programs in the country -- where he brought out the best in non-traditional students. He is currently teaching a weekend workshop studio course at Mission College in Santa Clara, CA, as well as a selection of classes at the TechShop in Menlo Park, CA.
