Touchstone Center for Crafts presents a fall workshop, Metal Mesh, with Pittsburgh based sculptor Atticus Adams. September 23-25, 2016.
Atticus Adams will lead a workshop in sculptural exploration using metal mesh and other approachable and readily available materials.
Known for his metal fiber sculptures, Atticus has been creating award winning sculpture and art from mesh and other industrial materials since 1992. His work is in numerous private collections and has been exhibited in numerous solo and group shows across the U.S. His formal art training included studies at Yale, Rhode Island School of Design, and Harvard’s School of Architecture.

“Metal mesh is a beautiful, flexible material that allows you to explore shadow and transparency in endless ways,” he says. “The material lends itself to these biomorphic shapes, which aren’t necessarily intentional . . . The sculptures seem fragile but are actually quite resilient—like nature itself,” Atticus Adams.
