If you dabble in sculpture you don’t want to miss this workshop! Chip will demonstrate hot patina techniques on bronze and give a presentation of projects he has worked on at Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry. Working with the foundry has afforded him a glimpse into a side of the art world most never see, a world at the intersection of art and craft, while allowing him to forge the connections that help him to fulfill his own artistic interests. About Chip: Chip Schwartz lives and works in Beacon, NY, where he is the owner of Schwartz Metal Arts. In addition to doing one of a kind jewelry, flatware, and both functional and sculptural hollowware in his Beacon studio, Chip teaches jewelry and metalsmithing classes to groups and individuals. He also works as a patineur and finisher at the renowned Polich Tallix Art Foundry, in Rock Tavern, NY, where he has had the opportunity to work on pieces for the likes of Martin Puryear, Tom Otterness, Richard Prince, Ursula Von Rydingsvard, Michelle Oka-Doner, and many others.
