I will be giving a talk on the methods and materials used in ancient Peruvian metalworking at the Irving Arts Center on November 2nd at 2pm. The talk is free and open to the public. In addition to explainging how they acquired and used various metals, I will also give short demonstrations on some of the techniques using more contemporary equipment. Even if you don't get a chance to see the talk, I highly reccommend the exhibition which was organized in conjunction with the National Geographic Museum. Its an outstanding collection of work. It will be up until the end of the year. For more information, visit the Irving Arts Center Website.
