Students will learn an approachable casting technique using hand-carved graphite molds and silver. I will discuss my ideation process while demonstrating how to carve graphite blanks to create silver ring bands from recycled silver scrap and/or silver casting grain. The molds carved can be used to make replicas of the same ring or adapted to alter the outcome. Once the rings are made, I will demonstrate how to planish and size the rings simultaneously.
