Heavy Metal

This month’s visiting artist is metalsmith Natalie Macellaio. I recently had the opportunity to ask Natalie a few questions such as, what metal means to her. ‘Metal can be flexible and strong, it can be polished to a high shine or look as if it has been corroding for years.  It truly has endless possibilities, with a beautiful and tainted past.’

Each Thursday Night staff has teamed up with Natalie for unique, hands-on, art-making workshops. So far we’ve created brooches from nickel, brass, and copper, explored different textures featured in Natalie’s work digitally, and even experimented with low relief techniques using hammering tools.
