This intermediate/advanced course provides the information and facilities necessary to express ideas through the indirect process of metal casting. The "lost wax" method is used to manifest ideas in sculpture. Lectures and demonstrations are combined with work time in class. Students generate sculpture forms in wax then gate, invest, weld, chase, patina, and present at least one finished piece. Students are billed a materials fee. May be repeated for credit. Prerequisites: Art 20D, 20H, 23, 28, 29, 37, 40, 120, 121, 122, 124, 125, 129, 172, 180B, 183, or 189; and two non-sculpture/intermedia public art lower-division studios (Art 15-38 or CMPS 25, or CMPM 25). Restricted to art majors. May be repeated for credit.
