Foldforming is Sue's particular specialty and passion. Foldforming is a group of metalsmith techniques based on folding, hammering or milling, then unfolding. Simple tools (e.g., flame, hammers, rolling mill) are employed. While most metal techniques are designed to overcome the natural properties of metal, foldforming seeks to understand and use those natural properties (e.g., the tendency of metal to flow and spread when hammered.) The resulting forms are three dimensional and organic, much like other objects in nature (leaves, flowers) because the same forces are at work.
