Contemporary Coppersmithing in the Arts & Crafts Style

Master metalsmith Frank M. Glapa will give a brief overview of copperwork in the Arts & Crafts Movement, both historically and today. Frank will discuss how he became interested in working with copper and demonstrate some hammering techniques, most notably repousse (from the French to beat back). During the demonstration Frank will take questions from the audience so feel free to jump in with any questions you may have. 'I create original and custom designs in copper, hammered brass, nickel silver, silver and wood. I primarily work in the Arts & Crafts and Craftsman Style, inspired by the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh from Glasgow Scotland, the Greene & Greene brothers and The Roycroft Art Metal Shop of The Roycrofters Guild of East Aurora, NY.'

White Oak America's Most Useful Hardwood

This talk will explore the historic uses of the indigenous White Oak tree used in the making of early ships, wagons, barrels and furniture. The differences between plain sawn, rift and quartered will be discussed as wellas useful applications of each.

Finally, we will look at the current demand for white oak created by the revival of the arts and crafts movement and the Whiskey industry.

Dard Hunter III has been making quartersawn white oak frames for the past 20 years and has been involved in architectural restoration for most of his life. These interests combined have instilled a great appreciation for White Oak and further study of its history in America.

The grandson of legendary Roycrofter, Dard Hunter (1883-1966), he was immersed with the ideals of the arts and crafts movement from an early age and founded Dard Hunter Studios in 1995.
