Hand Fabrication & Production

 

Hand Craft

Hand fabrication and production: this is the domain of the Sloth.

Whether you want a one-of-a-kind sculpture or are interested in hand-made multiples, your design will be handled with passion and enthusiasm.

FIRE

The Sloth can solder silver, gold, brass, bronze, copper, and nickel. She has a forced-air acetylene torch with torch heads of various sizes, good for soldering and annealing (the softening of metal) projects of many different dimensions.


FORCE

The Sloth loves her hammers! She can form and shape metal with hammers, dapping blocks, custom tools, mandrels, and anvils. She can rivet and cold-connect more delicate joints. She has experience raising vessels, making tools, chasing & repousse, and much more.

FUN

There's a lot more to metalsmithing than lighting things on fire and hitting them with hammers, though that's a lot of fun! The Sloth is also excellent at wire-wrapping, mechanisms, texturing, stamping, etching, filing, sanding, polishing, finishing, mixing media, and much more.
