The juried competition will select four entries for top honors.  Judges are Charles Lewton-Brain, Hazel Wheaton, Editor of Art Jewelry Magazine, and Edward Mack, award winning metalsmith and director of the Center for Metal Arts. A preview screening of all of the entries will be presented at a dinner to be held at the Seligmann Center for the Arts. The top entries will be presented in a 2013 Jurors' Choice video. In addition, the publication of an art book of curated entries from the competition will follow the conference.

Winners will be named on August 5, 2013 at the Sixth Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference at the Center for Metal Arts in Florida, NY. Winners will also be posted online at the Center for Metal Arts blog and on Facebook. Prizes will include gift certificates from our generous friends at Rio Grande jewelry supplies.

The evolution of the foldforming technique as pioneered by Charles Lewton-Brain is best described as a creative combination of origami with other forming techniques. The conference is an opportunity for foldforming artists to work with and learn directly from Charles Lewton-Brain. Registration details for the conference are available at
