Joseph Cavalieri created these piece during a teacher's retreat at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina. Cavalieri says: “It was a new way of working, combining acid etched metal and digital imagery I created especially for the retreat." The process includes image transfer onto copper, acid etching and finally a patina is added to make the image pop. Joseph is an artist and instructor working with painted glass. His studio is located in New York City.

Wonderful! I just drool over metal art, including jewelry. I love the etching and the patinas.

Something else for my bucket list ;-)
