About:
I own, West Metalsmithing, which is a jewelry and sculpture studio located in the Central Valley of California.

The focus of my work is on the fabrication of one of a kind precious metal jewelry using mokume-gane metal laminates and non-traditional materials.

I also create a line of cast bronze and iron sculptures as well as small scale hand forged anticlastic sculptures.

Check out my website to see more of my work at www.westmetalsmithing.com

You can also check out my wife, Laura West's sculpture at www.westsculpturestudio.com.

Thank you Eric. I find your Anticlastic sculpture very interesting, and I do like the warmth of the material. The use of non traditional materials in your work definitely makes it stand out.

Eric West replied to Debra Montgomery's discussion 'PRICING YOUR WORK' in the group Sculptor's Corner
"Also when figuring cost, do not forget to include consumables (sandpaper and such) and any waste materials-filings or loss from casting for example. These are often included in the floor cost for some folks, but should be kept track of."
