Book of Kells: Framed Tree of Life

The Books of Kells Series:
Inspired by the artistry of the ancient text and my belief that books carry within them all the questions and answers we've ever dreamt up. Much like each of us as individuals, each page leads to the next, but never is a single page the sum of us or our life story. With space for an important keepsake, picture, or, perhaps, a lock of hair from our own love story.

On the Cover, Tree of Life:
This is my interpretation of the Tree of Life: The universe depicted as an extention of one codependent form. The root sustains through it's connection to the ground while the branches bring heavenly sustainence. Worked with trinity knots at the end of the branches, this knot represents the trinity archetype. From the body, mind, and spirit, to the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Framed by an original, hand drafted knot work design.

Hallowe'en Post

Last day of October and spooky hallowe'en is here again. I've never much bothered with the festival as I'm not much of a horror fan but this year I've been paying a bit more attention and have been finding it quite funny, especially the non-gendered gingerbread person biscuits which one of the fashion students had iced to look like skeletons:…See More

A modern metalsmith/metal artist can be found working in traditional metals as well as in nontraditional materials. The designs can range from the classic to the extravagant, and the techniques can either be centuries old or decidedly current.

The wide range of expression preferences, design options, materials, and processes has lead within our field to unfavorable misconceptions, misunderstandings and in some cases even outright disdain between artists. Can the metal and jewelry field overcome its division and send out a much-needed signal?

We appreciate and respect our historical past and acknowledge that current materials have a rightful place in jewelry/object making!
