I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
In creating new work, I consistently look to preexisting forms and structures that share a background of utility and functional design. I find clarity in tasking a seemingly simple, functional object and reconfiguring it somehow. Form, material, and process are all critical components; by engaging formal and functional issues, I create incongruous objects.

Hi Haley! Hope things are going well in Colorado!
 
 
 

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!
