On the Thursday, June 17th broadcast at 3PM Pacific and 6PM Eastern, Jay Whaley chats with Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain. Charles trained, studied and worked in Germany, Canada and the US. His work is concerned with Process and with Beauty as well as function. Process and the tensions between nature and structure are part of his concerns. His work and writing on the results of his technical research have been published internationally. In 1994 Brain Press was established which documents, publishes and markets the results of his research activities. He has worked on the Cage Series of work extensively since 2001. Images of some Cage work is here Slide Show. He traveled to Thailand to visit Dr. Hanuman Aspler, his colleague, in the spring of 2008. This journey contributed to a major exhibition and catalog (River Trip) and rekindled his interest in chasing.
