Master goldsmith Charles Lewton-Brain trained, studied and worked in Germany, Canada and the United States to learn the skills he uses. His work is concerned with Process and Beauty as well as function. He thinks of decision making in metal as drawing, working with the same sensibilities of mark and commitment as when working with pen and ink. Many pieces use a 'printmaking' approach to working metal, that is that the work is done in separate steps in groups and layers building towards the finished piece. 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. Over 700 images from the journey are here. He also published two major books in 2008, Foldforming with Brynmorgen Press, and The Jeweler's Bench Book with MJSA Press.
A distinguished Fellow of the Society of North American Goldsmiths, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy and a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain he has lectured and taught in England, Germany, the United States, Canada and Australia. He is a consultant on the jewelry field, and has written expert witness reports regarding health and safety in US legal cases. A 2010 online interview with Jay Whaley is here an hour long interview
He developed 'fold-forming', a series of techniques new to the metalsmithing field which allow rapid development of three dimensional surfaces and structures using simple equipment. The Rolex Awards for Enterprise chose a project of his on the further development of fold forming for inclusion in a book on innovative developments in science and invention in the world, the Rolex Awards for Enterprise 1991 Edition. He has written seven books, over 15 monographs and published hundreds of articles in magazines as well as book chapters. He translated the monumental 560 page German “Theory and Practice of Goldsmithing” into English. He was on the editorial masthead at AJM magazine, and has been a contributing editor on a number of books to MJSA Press.
He served as a director on the board of the Alberta Crafts Council for five years and six years as the National Crafts Representative on the board of the Canadian Conference of the Arts, where he had national reporting responsibilities and presented the views of Canada’s national crafts organization, the Canadian Crafts Federation of which he was a founding participant. After a year as Vice-President he served over two years as President of the Canadian Crafts Federation/Federation Canadienne des Metiers d’Art. Charles was an essential member of the Craftyear 2007 Project which resulted in over 550 events nationally. He created Alberta's Black Rod for the Legislative Assembly, a major piece of state silversmithing. Similarly he has made maces, chalices and repaired important awards: click here for more.
He has lived in Calgary since 1986 and is long-time Head of the Jewellery/Metals Program at the Alberta College of Art and Design as well as teaching full time, writing articles, exhibiting, consulting and making work. In 1996 he began a web site collaboration with Dr. Hanuman Aspler in Thailand. The Ganoksin Project web site is now the largest educational site in the world for jewelers with over 4 million unique visitors a year who linger for an average of 20 pages and a 10,500 member archived, searchable discussion email list called Orchid. His writing started the site. From 1991-2002 he and his spouse, artist Dee Fontans created and ran the Centre for Jewellery Studies in downtown Calgary.
His two daughters Erika Kulnys-Brain and Aniko Lewton-Brain are successful, lovely, intelligent young women. To order Erika Kulnys' 2005 CD "Hurricane" Email Us. His brother Peter Lewton-Brain is a renowned ballet dancer, movement specialist and osteopath, with his partner, Etoile, Principal Dancer and now head of a ballet school, Paola Cantolupo and their son Davidé.

Charles Lewton-Brain:
Professional History Detail

Professional Artist since 1981. Exhibited and published widely with national and international recognition for his contributions as an artist, educator and cultural sector worker. Visiting Artist at numerous colleges in Canada, the United States and Australia, and speaker at conferences in Canada and the United States, England, Australia, Portugal. In 1984 was granted Distinguished Membership status from the Society of North American Goldsmiths and Juried Membership Status in the Nova Scotia Designer Crafts Council, Halifax. In 1999 the Alberta College of Art and Design awarded him the "Board of Governors Award of Excellence", "in recognition of significant contributions to the arts in the province of Alberta". In 1997 and 2001 he won the Student Association's "Teachers Cup"‚ for outstanding teaching and inspirational work for students.

Important contributions to historical development: Maintained a strong practice and exhibition record since 1981. Published images of work and opinions widely. Writing subjects ranged from critical to technical, from PR methods and photography for artists to studio safety and research papers on historical and technical subjects. Personal artistic research into process and compositional systems is reported to the field internationally in the form of books, videos and articles. Thousands of metalsmiths internationally have adopted methods he developed and use them in their work. His inventions and working techniques are taught around the world in jewelry programs.

He invented fold-forming, a large system of working sheet metals that is completely new to the world. It uses simple hand tools to produce complex three dimensional and relief forms and structures rapidly. There are hundreds of shapes possible, and the results are widely used for sculpture, installation, decorative blacksmithing and jewellery making. Numerous colleges and schools worldwide now offer courses using these techniques. The British Museum research lab (Metals Head, Paul Craddock) and the Rolex Awards for Enterprise have confirmed this is a new, original approach to working metals (1990).

As an educator he has influenced many students, and directly taught his ideas about position, philosophy, learning and technique to several thousand people through workshops and lectures. Many students credit his teaching for their success in the United States and Canada. He taught at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from 1982-84, 86 and in Calgary since 1986 at the Alberta College of Art and Design, where he has been jewellery/metals program head for over ten years. He has given over two hundred workshops and lectures internationally.

Lewton-Brain translated the 560 page book "Theorie und Praxis des Goldschmieds" by Erhard Brepohl (from German into English). A 13 year "service to the field" project (two complete editions were translated). This book is the most important, comprehensive book in the metals field (2001). He has written four books for jewelers, the last one, on safety for metal workers has become a standard resource in the field. Some eight published monographs have sold tens of thousands of copies internationally.

Past President of the Canadian Crafts Federation/Fédération Canadienne des Métiers d'Art, Canada‚s national organization for the craft sector. He was a founding member of the group in 1999. He spent six years as a member of the Board of the Canadian Conference on the Arts (CCA) as the national representative for Craft with reporting and representational responsibilities to the eleven provincial craft councils and to the Canadian Crafts Federation. His reports (every six months) from 1996-2002 were influential in national Craft development and as references for provincial and federal bodies. He served as an Alberta Craft Council Board member1991-95. He has participated in many provincial cultural intitiatives, conferences and workshops provincially and nationally.

Lewton-Brain created a major competitive commission for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, the 'Black Rod' made of sterling silver, gold and ebony, 42" long. Only the British Parliament and Ottawa have this symbolic object. Alberta is the first other commonwealth Legislative Assembly to have one. The British Parliament, the Government of Sri Lanka and the Royal Canadian Legion were all sponsors of the project (1996-97). Other public commissions include the Mace for the Technical University of Nova Scotia in Halifax and a chalice made for the Pope's visit to Halifax in 1984.

His contributions to significant contemporary practice include: Wearable art, exposed in the form of public performances, lectures and published images. Risky work, challenging audience and wearer. Contemporary jewellery shown to the public in numerous venues and disseminated through magazine and catalog images, as well as the internet.

He has focused since 1997 on 'Cage' series works, related pieces bound by format, ranging from performance oriented body art to jewellery. The recent concentration has been on jewellery. The jewellery is made by welding stainless steel wire with an orthodontic fusion welder, then electroformed, literally grown in a copper-acid bath, finally heavy gold electroplating.

He has served as a jury member on a number of juries, Saskatchewan Craft Council, Metal Arts Guild (national), ACAD awards committee member 1990-2001. Member of Diplome D'Honneur committee of the CCA and juror for the national Diplome d'Honneur and for the Rogers Communications Award (English) (Media Competition). Juror for the Keith Kelly Award for Cultural Leadership, and juror for the Saul Bell Awards in 2003. Canadian curator and national coordinator for "Handwerk 96", international exhibition at the Munich Handwerksmeße, Germany for nine years (1989-98). Curated 'Body Ornament West" in Calgary and Edmonton in 2004 and has curated a number of exhibitions of contemporary jewelry in North America. Technical editor and advisor for books by other authors. Editorial advisor and columnist for AJM magazine.

Lewton-Brain's web published articles have touched thousands of artists and craftspeople. In concert with Dr. Hanuman Aspler, he developed the Ganoksin Project (1996-05), now the largest educational resource web site in the world for jewelers and metalsmiths. Over 600 pages of his writing are published there. The Ganoksin Project has up to 2,500,000 hits a month, people linger for an average of 20 pages, some 6000-9000 unique individuals visit a day. The 5500 member mailing list 'Orchid' generates some 50 edited messages a day, all archived and searchable. The impact worldwide is huge, and the site provides access to critical, business, PR and technical information to tens of thousands who would not otherwise have it. The Ganoksin Project has created and facillitated partnerships for information sharing with over 12 international jewelry magazines and a number of trade, industry and art jewelry oganizations. A history of the Ganoksin Project is here.

He maintains a list of some 400 metals, jewelry and art links which are widely circulated via email and have been published at several web sites, (SNAG, Metal Web News, Australian Jeweller). He regularly compiles and submits lists of exhibition opportunities to Canada's national metals group (MAGlist) and to the Orchid list.

Influence of his research into compositional systems can be traced in the work of many people nationally and internationally.
