This event is a survey of the evolution of foldforming techniques applied in the world today in jewelry, sculpture, architecture, functional objects, and unexpected applications. Artists will find the call for entries at www.foldforming.org/2022call.html .

Presenting the 2022 Jury

The jury will look for a well-crafted use of foldforming techniques in the metal arts, in a fully realized work, with points for excellence of execution and bold explorations.
