This unique and exciting workshop explores metal surface embellishment using current photocopy technology. This process involves a heat transfer of virtually any high contrast photographic or graphic image via transparency film, directly onto metal. By using a mordant (acid), such as ferric chloride, images are etched onto the surface of copper and brass. The etched plate can then be altered by piercing, patination, enameling or used as a printing plate.

Laser Cut Pop out Rings

Designed for a larger sculpture for Burning Man’s 2015, Carnival of Mirrors, these laser cut rings allowed for little Playa gifts. At our theme camp, Oasis 47, a large archway filled with laser cut panels, allowed BRC Citizens to take away their own piece of jewelry. It was fun to hear them pop out and to watch folks place them on their finger. I think there was at least three marriage proposals!
