        Chloe Darke: Function and Expression in Metalsmithing - Lesson Plan | Craft in America

        Students will explore the work of metalsmith Chloe Darke, who produces silverware for the company Old Newbury Crafters. Additionally, in her own studio work Darke creates vessels that she describes as “objects of empowerment,” referencing the female form. In this lesson, students will compare and contrast the functions of Chloe Darke’s tableware with her vessels, through a class debate arguing the value of each form. Additionally, students will sketch a design for their choice of a utilitarian, historically based metal object, or a contemporary vessel with symbolic meaning.
