Releve, Pirouette, What's Now?


This new exhibition brings the work of Chien-Wei Chang to the Crafts Study Centre with his first one person show at Farnham. He describes how he loves metal 'because of the characteristics of the material and the process of making it work: treating it with fire to anneal it, using hammers to translate the invisible ideas into visual forms and bathing it in water to cleanse it. When I place metal, especially silver into acid to purify it and turn it white, it feels as though I have completed a personal ritual - almost like a baptism'.
