An Artist of Metals and More...
Corrina Sephora began her life-long interest in metalworking at the age of five in her father’s workshop, where she was introduced to the art of boat building. In 1995, Corrina went on to receive her BFA in Sculpture and Metalsmithing from the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. She then moved to Atlanta, Georgia, where she has since established her own studio, specializing in sculpture, furniture, and architectural works.
Corrina's personal work often uses the imagery of boats and ships as metaphors for life experiences, and as story-telling tools. The boat form is a vessel and magical symbol for transition, while the ocean represents mystery and power, and the ebb and flow of the past and present.
In 2005, Corrina received her MFA in Sculpture from Georgia State University. She has taught on the college level, and presented at national and international blacksmithing workshops and conferences. Her prestigious metalworking awards include “Best in Show” from Annette Cone-Skelton of MOCA GA, Silver Award from Icarus International, Silver Sculpture Award from NOMMA, and a number of other awards. Corrina’s metalwork is on permanent display in Atlanta at the Martin Luther King National Historic Site, The Atlanta Botanical Gardens, King and Spaulding’s Contemporary Art Collection, Temple Sinai, and many private collections internationally. She continues to exhibit in museums, galleries, and public art venues.
Gabi did a great job and we all enjoyed ourselves learning the basics of welding. The class was informative and gave us just enough knowledge to be able to begin welding on our own. Highly recommend Gabi!
Very poorly structured and designed overall a big no no Unfortunately I was expecting something more instructional big dissolution Sincerely yours AS Marietta GA 12/2019
Corrina did a good job teaching welding. She made it fun. The class seemed shorter than it was. I wish I could've welded more but I didn't realize I'd really dig it!
This was a wonderful class to take for a beginning welder. I took the class with my two daughters and my grand-daughter; the women in my family are up for learning all kinds of skills! The instructor, Eli, did a fantastic job. His explanations, demonstrations, and personal help was very thorough and demonstrated much skill and knowledge. The class size was small, which gave everyone plenty of one on one time with the teacher. Everyone in the class was friendly and supportive. We had a lot of fun and plan to take more classes in the future. Elaine Adams
This class was a ton of fun! Eli was an excellent teacher. We did this as a family outing and absolutely loved it! I highly recommend taking this class!
Eli was awesome! Very knowledgeable and patient. Great way to learn the basics of welding.
Great class. Eli was a great instructor.
Class was perfect size and the workshop was in an excellent location It was truly an introduction to welding, Corrina was very patient and knowledgeable, making sure we all were comfortable working with the welding equipment. She did a forging demonstration at the end of class which was very interesting. I enjoyed the class and look forward to taking another class soon!
Corrina was great. Really enjoyed the class and the discussions. Good hands-on fundamentals and fun environment. Definitely going back.
Class was a good hands on beginner course. The only thing I would suggest would be to have the metal pieces cut before class.
