Foldforming is a conceptual, physical and intuitive approach to metalsmithing that is informed by the natural characteristics of metals. Rather than forcing form upon a material, this system exploits the inherent qualities of plasticity, ductility and elasticity in metals, offering a significant new series of procedures that are extremely efficient for generating hundreds of unique, three-dimensional forms. Using the inherent characteristics of metal to generate forms teaches a deep understanding of the material and instructs us in the way forms develop in nature.

Foldforming presents innovative and time-saving techniques that can replace or augment traditional goldsmithing procedures. Foldforming has been recognized by the British Museum Research Laboratory as a completely new approach to working metals with hand tools, chosen by the Rolex Awards for Enterprise Committee, and has been featured in a book on innovative developments in science and invention in the world.
